Sri Lanka is one of the few remaining places where you can see hundreds of wild elephants. It’s not certain how many elephants there are in Sri Lanka, but according to the World Animal Protection Organization’s research report , there is an estimated five to six thousand elephants in the wild in Sri Lanka. This means that Sri Lanka has the highest density of wild Asian elephants worldwide.
The Sri Lankan subspecies is the largest and also the darkest of the Asian elephants, with patches of depigmentation—areas with no skin color—on its ears, face, trunk and belly.
In north-central Sri Lanka's Minneriya National Park, hundreds of elephants travel each year to the shores of an ancient reservoir built by a king more than 1,700 years ago. They've made the trip for centuries, coming from across the region to bathe, mate, socialize and, most importantly, to feed as part of an annual event known as "The Gathering."
