Sri Lanka - Wildlife - Elephants

This photo taken on March 24, 2011 shows elephants crossing a river during their daily outing from the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka where the world's largest captive group of elephants, who where orphaned, rescued, injured or abused, are cared for. It was announced in February, 2011 that Sri Lanka is planning its first ever census of elephants as the animals increasingly come into conflict with villagers, saying a head count would start in August, 2011 to aid better planning of conservation and minimise clashes between elephants and humans. Sri Lanka's elephant population is believed to have dwindled to about 4, 000 from an estimated 12, 000 in 1900. AFP PHOTO / William WEST / AFP PHOTO / WILLIAM WEST
