Myanmar's Elephant Logging Camps Under Threat

YANGON, BURMA - JANUARY 28: An 'oozie' or elephant handler prepares bandages to clean a wound on his elephant's shoulder in front of his house on January 28, 2014 in Maing Hint Sal elephant logging camp, Myanmar. This government-owned camp holding 62 elephants and about 330 local villagers is one of many which are under threat due to upcoming changes in laws that reflect the steady depletion of forests in the country. The local government blames illegal loggers for this, while others are under the opinion that the government carelessly sold land for construction and development purposes to the wrong people. Either way, elephant logging which has been a source of income for many in this country for generations could have its days numbered which would affect many local people's livelihoods.
