The plight of Sri Lanka’s elephants

Thank you, Katheen Hawes, for a brilliantly written piece, which tells the complicated story of the tragic plight of Sri Lanka's captive and wild elephants - an issue that has grabbed my heart and won't let go.

Correction: The correct spelling of the name of my project partner is Dr. Susan Mikota of Elephant Care International.

Our other key veterinarian partner was Dr. Ashoka Dangolla of the University of Peradeniya. Tharaka Deepal assisted our team with field logistics.

Many thanks to all!...
