According to the elephant census carried out in 2011 by the Wildlife Conservation Department, Sri Lanka is home to 5,879 elephants out of which 1,107 are babies and 122 are tuskers.

The tuskers are always males,because only male Asian elephant have tusks.

Globally there are mainly two extant species of elephants – the African elephant (Loxodonta) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus)

The Asian elephant falls into three distinct subspecies: Elephas maximus maximus (living in Sri Lanka), Elephas maximus indicus (living in mainland Asia), and Elephas maximus sumatranus (living in the island of Sumatra).

As urbanization takes hold,the elephants have nowhere else to go & end up in fields searching for foods.

Each year in Sri Lanka 50 people are killed by Elephants. 100 -150 elephants are being killed each year & it doesn't seem as if anyone can come to a solution.

Because of these statistics Sri Lankans are mobilizing & fighting back. Elephants are being shot,poisoned & electrocuted. Also they are being hit by trains, falling in to wells as well.

The elephant is endangered & it is illegal to kill them. We keep talking about it but when are we going to take action against the protection of our wild Elephants.

Don't they deserve to live happily? Don't they deserve to see tomorrow's sunrise?

Decision is yours...!!!

Thank You...
