A baby that lost its mother, rejoins a new home for elephants
It is a sunny day in the rural areas of Sri Lanka where villagers and farmers move towards the jungle areas to gather herbs. A Couple of villagers spotted an elephant baby running around with another giant elephant collapsed on the ground. Villagers knew what they had to do and immediately contacted the wildlife department to take care of this situation.
However, this young elephant is furious over losing its mother, and it is scared as well. Officers have one task in hand, to get this elephant out from this hostile area towards a much safer place.
This sad little elephant needs to be fed first to keep it calm till the officers are able to take it back to a conservation zone. Look at his getting a load of food to eat. Soon after they brought in some water to cool it down and to give it a proper bath.
It is very late now and even with limited visibility during the night time, they were able to load the baby elephant. They took this baby elephant away to a safer location into the conservation zone where this baby will join many more elephants to be with.
Sri Lanka and Elephants
In the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, Elephants roam the streets and through village areas freely in many regions of the country. The small island nation is full of elephants that are loved by most of the inhabitants of the island. Most educated in the country are continually fighting corruption and animal abuse especially towards the treasures that elephants are to the state as Sri Lankan elephants are known as the largest and the strongest among Asian elephants.
However, around farming villages where elephants raid crops, many conflicts are happening that have caused casualties to both sides. They have set a lot of fences and electric fences with barriers around many villages and farmlands around national parks and many massive forest reserves. These elephants often run into traps and wells placed along farms for water supply.
We humbly invite you to join us with a journey full of love and help to our treasured wild elephants in the paradise island of Sri Lanka.
