Dia 205 / Day 205 - January 23/2012


Hoy hicimos un paseo muy especial con Anumapa y Anshini; estuvimos visitando un orfanato de elefantes en Pinnawala, que queda a un par de horas de Colombo.  Llegamos al orfanato y ya habian llevado los elefantes para el rio a disfrutar del baño de la mañana.  Estuvimos viendolos jugar en el agua y refrescarse en el rio, despues es una procesion de regreso al orfanato.

En el orfanato los dejan en un area libre donde ellos corren y juegan.  Tambien traen unos para alimentarlos, alli estuvimos dandoles bananos y piña.  A los mas pequeños se les puede dar tetero.

En la tarde los llevan nuevamente al rio por dos horas mas para que se refresquen despues de un caluroso dia.
El orfanato ha cuidado un total de 143 elefantes, de los cuales 65 han nacido en cautiverio y 44 han sido rescatados; en el momento el orfanato cuenta con 73 elefantes.

Today we went with Anshini and Anupama to visit the elephant orphanage located in Pinnawala, located a couple of hours from Colombo.  When we arrived at the orphanage they had already taken the elephants to the river for the morning bath.  We went to see them playing and refreshing in the water, after a couple of hours they are borught back to the orphanage.

In the orphanage they are set free in an open area where they run and play.  Some of them are brought to a feeding area, this is where we fed them with bananas and pineapples.  The smaller elephants are fed with milk using a bottle.

In the afternoon the keepers take them back to the river for two hours so they can play and refresh after a hot day.
The orphanage has taken care of a total of 143 elephants, out of which 65 have been born in the orphanage and 44 have been rescued.  At the moment the orphanage is taking care of 73 elephants.
