Pod Volunteer is looking for volunteers to join the team to support vital work helping to protect wild elephants.

The project is unique in Sri Lanka as their award-winning model focuses on researching wild elephants whilst working with the community to help them live peacefully together. You will assist their research to increase the understanding and knowledge of the 300+ elephants and other wildlife including sloth bears, leopards and jungle cats, living in the surrounding area.

Join this inspirational project if you would like to get involved in helping wild elephant and wildlife conservation in Sri Lanka.


The local team has a limited reach, so volunteers are an important asset providing resource to assist the monitoring, research and data collection of the wildlife in the area, which helps to protect it for future generations. The team research the elephant herd dynamics and record the elephant’s behaviour which is vital as little is known about elephant behaviour and biology. Understanding the ecological requirements of local wildlife including the sloth bear, leopard, rusty-spotted cat, fishing cat, jungle cat, golden palm civet, and Sri Lankan jackal is essential for future conservation.
