About Program

Assist with helping endangered elephants and local communities live together in harmony. You will be working with an award winning charity whose local scientists and conservationists conduct research to help monitor these incredible creatures that you will have the privilege of observing in the wild.

Each day you will be out witnessing elephants in their natural habitats and helping to protect their livelihood for future generations to enjoy. You will monitor elephants, trek through jungle following grazing trails, identify and photograph, observe from tree top platforms and carry out mammal and bird surveys.

In additional to this you will help in schools to teach environmental awareness to the future guardians of the elephants. You will also help local people improve their personal conditions to live alongside the elephants.

Accommodation is in a stunning location in the central forests of Sri Lanka. Breathtaking views overlook mountains close to Wasgamuwa National Park.
