Jetwing Eco Holidays congratulates Jon Hornbuckle, who is ranked the number one bird lister in the world with 9,554 bird species. He was in Sri Lanka with Jetwing Eco Holidays & FOGSL for a National Bird Ringing Program which resulted in the first conclusive record of Eurasian Wryneck (Jynx torquilla) in Sri Lanka. A bird was mist netted outside Yala National Park.

Climate Change Agreement rooted in historic signing on Earth Day
By Shaun HurrellThink of trees and you may think of fresh air to breathe. You may think of trapping carbon and combating climate change, or of food, a livelihood, or of forest habitat for the wildlife you love. You may think of the inspiration you found whilst climbing in nature as a child, or you might think of a robust trunk and long-lived roots that extend beyond our own lives. However you think of trees, they are a great symbol for Earth Day this year, which marks a special ceremony.
Trees are as vital for the health of our planet as the signing of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.Read More
The Udawalawe Safari would not have been as good if it was not for Chaminda’s knowledge of wildlife especially his expertise with bird life. Every extra activity he suggested as well as his local knowledge of the areas we were in excelled beyond our expectations. Chaminda made clear he was available for us 24hrs a day which made for a very safe, happy holiday. Chamina’s enthusiasm makes him an asset to Jetwing.

30th March – 4th April 2016 Niranjan is a terrific guide, professional, on-time and well connected in Sri Lanka. When we originally did the booking request, we did it with Jetwing Eco Holidays to stay at Jetwing Yala. When that didn’t happen Andrew came through with the Tented Camp – great solution. Niranjan made me feel comfortable and secure driving around Sri Lanka. Friendly and chatty he kept his car clean and was flexible with our requests. Very nice man.
