Three people give two elephants a morning bath

This photo by applied sciences major Zoe Wolszon ’14 was taken in Kerala, India, during the summer of 2012 while she was conducting an independent research project on traditional medicines in the healthcare systems of different Asian countries. On a weekend trip to the Kodanad Elephant Training Center (where elephants are trained for agroforestry work), she got to see the morning ritual of bathing the elephants. Her photo was the water theme winner for this year’s Carolina Global Photography Competition. Wolszon says, “I think this serves to remind us that water isn’t just a resource necessary to keep humans going; it serves to cleanse, nourish and house thousands of other creatures and bring communities together.”
