WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO?
Project Ele-Bus: Conservation of Elephants and other Wildlife in Wasgamuwa National Park in Sri Lanka

SMILE FOR THE DAY!

HOW TO WIN ELEPHANT FRIENDS! Another brilliant idea to reduce the conflict between Villagers and Elephants that was implemented by the management of this amazing Elephant Conservation Project in Wasgamuwa in Sri Lanka was to provide a bus to take the children safely to school through the Elephant Corridor.

Before the EleFriendly Bus arrived, children risked their lives every day walking to and from school through an ancient elephant corridor. And every day, elephants were the target of angry villagers who shot at them to scare, hurt and sometimes kill them. That's because elephants and humans share the same forests, fields, roads and corridors.

But now the children get taken to and from school safely every day, thanks to this awesome project!

The EleFriendly Bus is fun to ride with all sorts of colorful images and educational messages about elephants painted on the interior walls and ceiling. Every ride is an educational experience, and a chance to cultivate understanding among villagers about the plight of Sri Lanka's endangered elephants.

Since launching our EleFriendly Bus in 2016, daily school attendance is way up, local farmers spend more time and earn more income becaue they don't have to patrol the elephant corridor to keep their children safe, the children are learning to love rather than fear elephants ... and best of all, the wild elephants are free to safely roam their ancient elephant corridor! How marvelous is that?!
