# Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is an orphanage, nursery and captive breeding ground for wild Asian elephants located at Pinnawala village, 13 km (8.1 mi) northwest of Kegalle town in Sabaragamuwa Province of Sri Lanka. Pinnawalla is notable for having the largest herd of captive elephants in the world. In 2011, there were 88 elephants, including 37 males and 51 females from 3 generations, living in Pinnawala.[1]

The orphanage was originally founded in order to afford care and protection to many of the orphaned unweaned wild elephants found wandering in and near the forests of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1975 by the Sri Lanka Department of Wildlife Conservation (DWC).[2]

The Millennium Elephant Foundation is a separate registered private charity organization which is a retirement home for 7 elephants and a tourist attraction.[3]

Everyone Should Drink Green Tea If you're not already a tea drinker - you should be. Tea is one of the oldest and most natural drinks on the globe, and many are discovering there is a lot more to a cup of tea than you might suppose. This is especially true of green tea, arguably the healthiest variety of the tea industry. Why Green Tea? What makes green tea so special? Its many health benefits combined with a mild and delicious flavor have brought green tea almost instant fame over the last few years. As more is learned about the cancer preventative properties and other health aspects of the drink, green tea will continue to be among the world's healthiest beverages. Green Tea Reduces Certain Cancer Risks There have been studies across the globe that have now provided firm evidence that green tea inhibits the growth of cancerous cells, effectively reducing your risk of certain types of cancer. Green tea has been shown to reduce the risk of esophageal cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and cervical cancer. There are claims that green tea can prevent other forms of cancer as well. Green Tea Reduces Cholesterol Certain elements in green tea have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol, or the bad cholesterol, improving the overall cholesterol ratio. Many scientists now believe that the same natural ingredients found in green tea are responsible for the lower instances of heart disease among the French despite their smoking and diets rich in fats. The same is true of the Japanese. There is a very low instance of heart disease in Japan despite seventy-five percent of Japanese males smoking on a regular basis.
