22nd March was a special day for the Elephant Transit Home at the Uda Walawe National Park, as four young elephants were released to their natural habitat in the wilds of the Lunugamwehera.



Nurtured at the ETH Sevena since their separation from the mother elephants these young ones walked reluctantly away from the carers who had fended and looked after them for nearly five years in each case.
The ETH in Uda Walawe provides an excellent opportunity for elephant enthusiasts to see baby elephants at close quarters and in proximity to their natural habitat. 

This elephant conservation project - ETH; provides a home to baby elephants born in the jungles and separated early from their mothers. On being taken in to ETH they spend their days roaming freely in a section of the national park reserved for them and from which they will once again return to their   natural home .



The baby elephants are fed at three hourly intervals and that is the only time that public are permitted to view them.
