Elephant Conservation

Posted on by Jaya

This summer I spent one month at Minneriya National Park with Dr Prithiviraj Fernando, one of Sri Lanka’s most famous conservationists.

The Smithsonian Institute from the US sponsored us to observe elephant behaviour in the park.

The park is famous for the number of elephants who come to the Minneriya Reservoir during the dry season.

In particular, we analysed the way that elephants communicate with each other.

We observed how they communicate with each other using very low sounds that are not easy for humans to hear.

Nadigamwila Computer Lab

The new Principal of Nadigamwila School was very determined to get a computer lab for his students.

Because the government had no money to give him, he went out to find some sponsors and we agreed to help as well.

Commercial Bank paid for the computers and we provided five sets of computer desks and chairs to make the lab complete.
