Corbett Tiger Reserve has about 700 Asian elephants.  They are creatures of habit, and we timed our arrival at this location to witness them dusting after crossing the river. 

The Asian elephant is the largest land mammal on the Asian continent.  Asian elephants face many of the same population risks as the African savanna elephant:  human-wildlife conflict, poaching for ivory, habitat destruction, bushmeat poaching, illegal logging and charcoal production, and infrastructure & development.
