Baby elephant Rescue
6pm Natgeo Wild
Based at Sri Lanka’s Elephant Transit Home, this film follows the efforts of the sanctuary’s staff to rescue and protect elephants after they have been injured or abandoned.
With elephants and humans increasingly at conflict as land is cleared for agriculture and new homes, we meet Dr Pruthu Fernando who has come up with a way to solve the problem.
We also follow some of the young rescued elephants who’ll stay at the centre until they are five and then be returned into the wild to join the 110 elephants that have gone before them.
It’s feeding time at the sanctuary
