Live out of a remote field house on the outskirts of a national park with its researchers in a truly immersive experience that will take you from the padi fields of the village to the vast national landscape of a national park in Sri Lanka - all while learning about the wildlife in Sri Lanka, the elephant-human conflict and how you might contribute to being champions for the wildlife we have on Earth.
Through stories, lectures and dialogues learn about the current threats and challenges involved in the protection of wildlife
Work alongside local conservationists, activists, and ground team, contribute to their impactful work on the ground
Engage in wildlife observations, understanding animal behavior and habitat patterns that conflict with development
Savour Sri Lankan culture and hospitality as you experience local food, culture and conversations with locals!
