Dr. Deepani Jayantha, a dear friend and dedicated elephant welfare colleague working in Sri Lanka, is hoping to attend a conservation conflict resolution course being offered in DC next month. The course is not cheap ($1,500) and neither is the airfare ($2,000), but it promises to benefit her elephant welfare projects in Sri Lanka.
While in Sri Lanka last year I toured Dr. Jayantha’s projects. I am confident that the knowledge she gains from attending this course will enhance any project she manages.
I am hoping that someone has air miles to contribute for Dr. Jayantha’s flight from Colombo, SL to DC, USA. Underwriting would work as well. Here is a way for us to make a difference for the human/elephant conflict in a personal way.
