Eco Shame: The Garbage-Eating Elephants Of Sri Lanka

These harrowing images show elephants foraging for food on a huge pile of garbage. They were taken in Sri Lanka by Tharmaplan Tilaxan, a Jaffna-based photographer. He has observed the open waste dump amidst the jungles of the Eastern province for many months. He says: "elephants normally travel over 30km per day and seed up to 3,500 new trees a day". "For the Oluvhil Palakadhu elephants many things have changed & their changed behavior will change our landscape."
