WAY KAMBAS, LAMPUNG, INDONESIA - JUNE 13: Sumatran elephants out to find food in between patrolling the conservation looking for illegal loggers who are destroying the habitat of Sumatran elephants on June 13, 2010 in Way Kambas, Lampung, Indonesia. Sumatran elephants are becoming increasingly endangered due to the destruction of their habitat by logging, palm oil and rubber industries. This has resulted in the animals increasingly invading local villages, at times trampling locals to death and destroying homes and crops, as they return to land which was once their habitat and has now been settled by humans following logging. Villages in Lampung saw 327 elephants invade in a three month period during 2009, causing death and destruction as their own habitat continues to be threatened and depleted. Forest rangers and activists from the Wildlife Conservation Society are trying various methods to return them to the forests, including training them to keep away, along with hunting for illegal loggers. The current population for the mammals is estimated at 2000 to 2700. (Photo by Ulet Ifansasti/Getty Images)
