Back to the Field

Asian Elephant

We are leaving Monday for a month in Sri Lanka, a trip we've had planned for some time, but had postponed until now because of the continuing political problems there. Now, however, things appear to have settled down, so we will go ahead with our plans to work on several of that island's many endemic and endangered species. Among them : the rare Purple-faced Langur, the Sri Lankan Magpie and the Sri Lankan Leopard.  We also hope to spend some time in the company of wild elephants - one of our favorite things.
Along the way, we will also try to learn about Sri Lanka's long and glorious history, with visits to some of the most crucial archeological sites.  It will likely be difficult to keep up with this blog, but if I can find a computer and the internet - I'll try and let you know how we are getting on.

Have a terrific New Year, everyone.
