Sri Lanka dry-zone dry evergreen forests

WWF Abstract

Dry evergreen forests and grasslands spread across the flat areas of the island country of Sri Lanka, and thorny scrub grows in some of the more disturbed areas. These expanses of trees and open space give large numbers of Asian elephants room to forage for the huge amounts of leaves, bark, fruit, and other vegetation it takes to keep them alive.
