Four elephants trapped overnight in the Sahabat 50 estate’s pond in Lahad Datu, Sabah were rescued successfully by several FGV workers who found them the next morning at 7:30am, 21 March 2020.

The workers worked for two hours to level down the side of the pond, allowing the elephants to escape safely into the nearby forest.

The presence of our workers working under the Movement Control Order enabled the rescue efforts to be done quickly without the need of external assistance.
