Indonesia's endangered elephants, tigers and orangutans are threatened by shrinking habitat, which is cut and burned to make way for plantations or sold as lumber. Only 3,000 Sumatran elephants are believed to remain in the wild. (AP Photo/Irwin Fedriansyah)

The Sumatran elephant could be extinct in the wild within three decades unless immediate steps are taken to slow the breakneck pace of poachers and deforestation, environmentalists warn.
