This beautiful elephant herd was spotted in Polonnaruwa. An ancient capital city of the old ages of Ceylon when kings ruled the country and built many tanks and reservoirs. Parakrama Samudraya and Minneria Wewa are two massive tanks built during the ancient Sri Lankan civilizational era.
The engineering and the amount of work used to be successful in creating such massive tanks cannot be compared to what we can achieve with the advancement of technologies. All the farming villages have their irrigation system linked to this magnificent tank that also helps all other wild animals to drink and bath without any human hindrances.
In this footage, you can see many baby elephants. These small ones are the most aggressive compared to adults. But they are extremely lovable and cute and is completely worth the trip to record them being playful and loving within the herd.
Often this playful baby elephants wander away from the herd and get lost. In that case, they get separated from the relevant herd to be kept in a camp until wildlife officers find the correct parents for it to lead a life in a herd. Watch this footage and let us know about your thoughts, especially on these cute baby elephants that are so playful while being close to their elephant moms. A lot of elephants are attracted to this area due to its special humanmade tank, find out more information below.
Sri Lanka, the island of elephants
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.
