Volunteer Photo Gallery - The Great Elephant Project In Sri Lanka

Volunteer Photo Gallery - The Great Elephant Project In Sri Lanka

Posted by Connor Whelan on Dec 5, 2016

Back in September this year, one of our volunteers visited the Great Elephant Project in Sri Lanka and brought back some spectacular pictures from the project site. There were a lot to choose from, so we have selected some of our favourites which we think really show off just how incredible and varied this project is! We would like to say a big thank you to Richard for sharing these pictures with us, so let’s take a look:

Sri Lanka Elephant

This elephant knew exactly where the camera was!

White Bellied Sea Eagle

It's not just elephants that Richard saw out in Sri Lanka, he also managed to spot a White Bellied Sea Eagle.

Baby Elephant and mother

There are elephants of all ages that need the volunteers help.

Purple Heron

Here is a Purple Heron walking through the grass.

Elephant Herd

A herd of elephants grazing in the distance.

Sri Lankan Peacocks

You don't see a pair of wild peacocks every day!

Sri Lanka Sunset

Sunset's don't get much more picturesque and serene than this.

As you can see, Richard got some incredible pictures during his two week stay at the project, and this has hopefully given you a taste of what you can expect if you become out latest elephant volunteer! To find out a little bit more about the project, take a click here. If you want to check out the remainder of Richards volunteering pictures, then his portfolio is available on Flickr. It is well worth looking at!
