Episode InformationThis film captures one of the most stunning phenomena in the wild world. Wild Sri Lankan elephants assemble in large numbers every year – it’s a behaviour found in very few places around the world. But with a dwindling elephant population and the encroachment of their natural habitat and food by an expanding human population, the gathering could be under threat. Deadly clashes ensue between man and beast, as they fight over land that farmers have set aside for crops; a fight which the elephants will surely lose. We join the experts as they explore how we can conserve Sri Lanka’s elephant population – the largest of Asia’s elephant species, and uncover new insights into elephant behaviour, which could help protect the species.
