SRI LANKA: Don’t Ride Elephants – Bath them instead! Elephant Transit Home (ETH) in Udawalawe is supported by the Born Free Foundation, & managed by the Department of Wildlife Conservation in Sri Lanka (5km west of Uda Walawe National Park). This park rehabs injured & orphaned elephants, and then releases them back to the wild. Riding elephants requires a brutal "breaking" process, which must not be rewarded. Riding them also leads to spine injuries, and occasional death to the rider!
