Eld’s deer population has declined more than 50% in the past two decades.  There are three sub-species of Eld’s deer and are distributed as follows – Rucervus eldii eldii in India (thought to be extinct but rediscovered; 180), Rucervus eldii thamin in Myanmar & Thailand (2,200), Rucervus eldii siamensis in Cambodia & Vietnam (low tens), and Laos (possibly extinct).  Factors driving decline are deforestation for grazing and hunting (for food). The species have a fragmented distribution and are therefore at risk from inbreeding and loss of genetic variation
