2013-01-25: Joe was found nudging his dead mother on a path close to a logging operation at Yayasan Sabah's Forest Management Unit 23 in the Gunung Rara forest reserve on Jan 25. Wildlife officials had gone into the area to investigate the mysterious deaths that were first discovered on Dec 29.

2013-02-01: His mother was one of 14 rare Borneo pygmy elephants that have been found dead of suspected poisoning in recent days in a series of fatalities that has shaken conservation efforts.

2013-04-19: “He has gained 50kg since his arrival. He is 150kg now. He is still nursing, and we give him three liters of milk every two hours. He ‘wails’ when he is hungry,” Augustine said of Joe.
