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.
