Description

Tusker Mahasena, currently in Musth, has made a rare appearance in Yala National Park, Block 6. His purpose for venturing into this area is to seek a suitable female partner for mating. It is worth noting that sightings of Sri Lankan tuskers in their natural habitat have become increasingly scarce. These magnificent creatures with prominent tusks now constitute less than 5% of the overall elephant population. The decline in their numbers can be attributed primarily to the loss of their natural habitat, as well as the detrimental impact of human-elephant conflicts. The latter has resulted in the elimination of a significant portion of the aggressive male population from the wild. Consequently, this has led to genetic changes within the elephant population, ultimately leading to a decline in the majestic tusker population in their natural environment.
