  2. They are such beautiful creatures. We recently saw a number of them in Sri Lanka. Jono was able to take a few photos. They are just mesmerising to watch. It’s heartbreaking to read about the way poaching is impacting them, unfortunately it’s such a complex issue I’m unsure how meaningful change could be made at this point.
