This is a program for all you animal lovers as this will give you the opportunity to work closely with the wild animals treating and caring for them. You get to spend your time in a beautiful and luscious forest away from all the hustle bustle in the city allowing you to experience the rural village lifestyle and cuisine of the country. And the forest is the natural habitat to the animals like elephants, jungle cats, deer, eagles and reptiles in Sri Lanka. You will be working closely with the wildlife conservation Department of Sri Lanka to support rescuing injured animals and birds, and conserving the wildlife of Sri Lanka.
