Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is the largest collection of elephants in the world. It has wild Asian elephants which are being fed, treated and nursed for their wounds that they get in various forests of Sri lanka or from land-mines. According to our tour guide there were about 90 elephants at that time. Once the calves attain adulthood, they are either sold or donated.
