In 1990, the Holiday Resort Aek Raso were established on 4964 hectares of secondary forest at Kota Pinang, Labuhan Batu, North Sumatra, close to the border with Riau province, and a little more than half way between Medan and Pekanbaru, off the main trans-Sumatran highway. Elephants arrived in 1994 to establish an elephant training centre. By 2013 just 30 hectares of land remained, the rest having been illegally planted with rubber and oil palm, and the viability of the project, with 18 elephants, was in question.
