Training Elephants

Elephants in Sri Lanka  that are abandoned  by their herd or those that have been attacked and wounded by the local farmers ,a retribution ,for destroying their crops, are taken into an Elephant orphanage and are well taken care of, by the local authorities..We had the opportunity to see these elephants at this orphanage  during our visit  last summer. The home to these elephants, is placed in a sprawling and vast area ,so that they would not at all miss their natural habitat.It was a wonderful experience for all of us to see in reality these wild animals being transformed  tamed and  disciplined . 
Look who is eating all the greens!

 At play - during bath –time

To be fit and in shape-taking a walk
