Sri Lanka is a home for wildlife sanctuaries full of Elephants that 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.
A team of vets visited this elephant for a routine check-up and thats where they spotted the injury on its leg. This elephant is known to be a very aggressive one, and it surprised the team when this elephant showed no aggressiveness initially. This is due to its injuries that have weakened it over time.
The wildlife team did not waste any time and immediately started their preliminary medical procedures on the site. The tusker has injured its leg on its own, perhaps when navigating through difficult terrain. Such giants require a lot of medicine and help to recover their strength back, and luckily it still has plenty of energy to maintain its balance and to stand still. Once these giants fall down with no energy to stand up, it is extremely challenging for any team to get them up again. Watch the full video and find out how this mission went off and how they plan to carry out the next progressions sessions through this video.
The love affair between elephants and the island of Sri Lanka.
On 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 people in the country continually fight corruption and animal abuse. Especially they continue their resolve to show how important 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 with 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.
