Elephants in India enjoy a fruit feast ahead of World Elephant day

Reuters, MATHURA, India, August 10 — Elephants rescued from circuses and temples in India are presented to a feast of their favorite fruits and veggies to commemorate World Elephant Day after an evening walk under gloomy sky with rain not far away.

At a sanctuary near the banks of the Yamuna River on the outskirts of Mathura’s historic city, a spectacular display of watermelons, bananas, papayas, and pumpkins is laid out for Asian elephants.

The Center celebrates World Elephant Day, which comes on August 12th, with a week of activities.

Most of the 28 elephants in the sanctuary, according to Wildlife SOS, suffer from chronic illnesses and a variety of afflictions, including abscesses, cataracts, blindness, and arthritis, according to conservationists.

“World Elephant Day tries to increase awareness about the suffering of elephants in India and around the world, and what they’re truly going through and why their population is diminishing,” said Shirina Sawhney of Wildlife SOS, the business that administers India’s only elephant hospital.

Elephants are a significant element of Indian culture, and they are frequently seen at festivals and processions throughout the country’s southern regions. They were also utilized as tourist attractions in several forts and palaces in the north and west.

Elephants are mistreated by the uneducated and are frequently victims of electric shocks, poaching, train accidents, and poisoning, despite their veneration as cultural and religious icons.

According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, the number of wild Asian elephants, which are mostly found in India and portions of South and Southeast Asia, has decreased to less than 50,000, which is only 15% of its historical average.
