Namal, a four-year-old elephant calf, was found in the Ampara jungles in 2012, when he was just a one-year-old. Wildlife officials found him exhausted and dying after being caught in a hunter’s snare and transported him to the Udawalawe elephant transit home. His back leg was then amputated by skilled veterinarian Dr. Vijitha and he has been living in the transit home since. Named after ‘Namal Uyana’, the area he was found
