“The track opened up to vast grasslands where a herd of up to thirty elephants were grazing just before nightfall. It was truly magical to watch. All of the staff was extremely hospitable, encouraging and kind. I would like to say a huge thank you! I will miss the serenity and lushness of this special place! I will definitely return sometime in the future.” Jasmine (NSW)
Saving wild elephants by helping local people is the mission of this award winning conservation project on the exotic Indian Ocean island of Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka’s remaining few thousand elephants are in grave danger. Elephants regularly come into contact and conflict with villagers in the remote and beautiful areas surrounding Sri Lanka’s National Parks where demand for farmland increases the pressure on elephant habitat. Be part of this vital conservation project which through research and education aims to protect and preserve the elephant populations
You’ll work alongside scientists and conservationists, tracking and monitoring the abundant wildlife and you’ll spend time with local villagers learning about the challenges they face and together seeking solutions.
