The Story of Oluvil Pallakkadu Elephants

Elephants normally travel over 30 km per day and seed up to 3500 new trees a day. For the Oluvil Pallakkadu elephants many things have changed and their changed behavior will change our landscape. Tharmapalan Tilaxan has observed this open garbage dump amidst the jungles of the Eastern Province for many months and documented the hazards this poses to the local elephant population.
