Environmentalists say that Sri Lanka’s wild elephants face the threat of extinction due to certain human activities.

In the year 1990 the number of elephants killed due to human activities was around 22 while currently the annual figure stands at around 250 to 300.

Environmentalist Nayanaka Ranwella said that in addition to the above several elephant calves die due to starvation as a result of electric fences obstructing their habitat.
