Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Actively help to promote the survival of elephants in Sri Lanka’s stunning countryside. You will be an important part of a key initiative to help elephants and communities live together.

This project works hard to protect boundaries between humans and elephants to create a sustainable future for both species. This involves closely monitoring the elephants in their natural habitat, working with local farmers to protect their crops, teaching awareness to school children and tracking elephants.

Volunteer tasks

There are a wide range of tasks that volunteers get involved in. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Monitoring elephant activity from a tree house, getting a clear view of their behaviour and movements
  • Completing wildlife surveys
  • Preserving the ecosystem
  • Tracking the elephants
  • Working with farmers to reduce the amount of crops elephants eat
  • Meeting local people
  • Teaching in the local school

This is an inspiring project which will take you right into the heart of conservation in one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world. Get to know the locals and work closely with the elephants for an unforgettable experience.

Accommodation and food

You will live in a shared volunteer house with stunning views out over reservoirs and mountains. The accommodation is basic and rustic. You will be sharing a room with 2 - 3 other volunteers with shared bathrooms.

Three delicious local meals are served each day.

Please note that for all of our projects you are required to pay in British Pounds, and that the price conversion to Euros shown on this website was made on 24/4/2018 and will change with the exchange rate.
