Appe Kale

Suraj and the rest of the Appe Kale team have been working in the local community to help make harmony between wildlife and the locals. Their projects in the community includes: creating year-round water sources in the dry zone as well as to protect the rivers and lagoon; protecting wildlife against poaching, loss of habitat, pollution, poisoning and illegal fishing practices; and working to stop illegal cutting of the forests, remove invasive plants that threaten forest growth and reforest with native fruiting trees and plants. In addition, this volunteer organisation also trains up locals to become naturalists. The expertise of Suraj and the team will impress you as you will not fail to learn about all the flora and fauna of Wilpattu National Park, not just the famous leopards.
