Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

We spent some time at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka. No matter what your view on animals and especially elephants in captivity, there is definitely a need in Sri Lanka (and many other countries). There are still working elephants here. We saw one hauling logs on the major road between Colombo and Kandy. In any case the elephants seem quite well looked after and have decent living spaces. They certainly seem to enjoy their time in the river (twice a day for two hours each time). Here is a short video highlighting our experience
