Human Elephant Conflict: A project by Jonathan Browning

Human Elephant Conflict | Sri Lanka | 2023

The death toll, both human and elephant, from Sri Lanka’s long-running human-elephant conflict problem hit a record high in 2022, with 145 people and 433 elephants killed.

The rising numbers of deaths mainly due to shrinking elephant habitats and the blocking of elephant corridors.

Images taken in Central North Sri Lanka where the situation is the most precarious. Captions, info and interviews available on request.
