The proposal to establish a protection centre for the two rare elephants in the Sinharaja forest reserve has received massive backlash from environmentalists.
The environmental organizations oppose the confinement of the two elephants who, now, roams in the Sinharaja forest reserve that spreads over 11,189 hectares, to an area of 50 acres with an electric fence.
They point out that the authorities should heed to implement more practical solutions to the human-elephant conflict.
