Madawa Gamage, Logistic Coordinator, Cameraman

Madawa is a precious gem to the SavingGanesh Organization. He has an uncanny ability to get us to the right places and the right time. He is a “doer,” making it all happen. Madawa is willing to put himself on the line - filming over the shoulder of farmers - in the night, and only feet from marauding elephants. He’ll also be steps away from a ranger who may be about to dart tranquilize a dangerous elephant. For a decade, Madawa has been a cameraman for the leading film company in Sri Lanka, Vision Works. He is their number one man for camerawork and the equipment needed to make it all happen. His love for wildlife is what has brought him to SavingGanesh.org, and we are so grateful.
