All elephants kept in captivity, mostly in zoos, are subject to a registration system in Malaysia. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization conducted research that found that the register contains 36 elephants.

The conservation of elephants in Malaysia has been well-thought-out, scientifically supported, and methodical. Human-elephant conflict elsewhere has been lessened and healthy, sustainable elephant populations have been ensured by the relocation of problematic elephants. Malaysia should be able to maintain a healthy elephant population on both the Peninsula and in Borneo in the future as long as further deforestation is limited.
