Elephant Transit Home ( Eth Athuru Sevana ) at Udawalawe National Park

The Department of Wildlife Conservation has established at Udawalawe National Park A center for rehabilitation and Re-integration of orphaned wild elephants. Increase of the country’s population, large-scale irrigation and agricultural projects have fragmented the former habitat of elephants, resulting elephant mortality and decrease of population. Despite the mitigation measures to control human elephant conflict, considerable numbers of elephant calves recovered as orphans. 

The Department of Wildlife Conservation pioneered a research project in 1995 at Udawalawe to rehabilitate and supplement wild elephant orphans back to wild. It has been successfully carried out with four releases in 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2004,2007,2008. Visitors could enjoy the antics of these babies from a viewing platform at the Center. The Department of Wildlife Conservation calls for public support to minimize the expense from the public by joining the foster-parent scheme and help wild elephant orphans program.
