Elephants and humans vie for land in Sri Lanka

Loss of habitat leads to deadly conflicts as elephants forced into human communities.

Sri Lanka’s expanding elephant population is causing growing concern for conservationists.

Habitat destruction is forcing them from the jungle into farming communities and that has led to confrontations with locals, with elephants killing more than 50 people so far this year.
