I've decided to travel to Sri Lanka next summer to volunteer with elephants and turtles and I need your help to get me there!
These amazing majestic creatures rely on volunteers to ensure that they receive the daily, hands-on care which allows them to live happy and healthy lives, without exploitation.
For a relatively small country, Sri Lanka has a high population of elephants, estimated to be over 4000 and they deserve to be treated with love and care. I'll be working up close and personal with the elephants, but I need to raise funds to get me there. My day with the elephants will involve cleaning the space they occupy, feeding, taking the elephants on walks and bathing them in the river.
My day with the turtles will consist of cleaning and refilling the turtle tanks, feeding and cleaning the turtle’s shells, etc. This project also aims to provide care and rehabilitation for turtles with the long term goal of releasing them back into the wild. This also includes being involved in removing litter from the beach, to make the environment safe and clean for the turtles to lay their eggs.
The money I will be raising will cover my placement fee, which will go towards the fund of caring for the elephants and turtles. Any money I am able to raise after that will go towards helping me get to Sri Lanka for an incredible lifetime experience. Thank you in advance!
