The Great Elephant Gathering at Minneriya, Sri Lanka, is the largest gathering of wild Asian elephants on Earth. It’s not just an awesome glimpse of the magnificent herds that once roamed Sri Lanka, it’s also opening eyes to innovative management techniques that could help people and wildlife live together in Asia. But why are they gathering? And life isn’t perfect for these elephants. A lone male emerges from the jungle with what appear to be fresh bullet wounds in his side. These are scars from an ugly war between man and elephant – and while the civil war in Sri Lanka may be over, this war is heating up.
