Satellite phone technology is now being used to help protect and save the endangered Elephants of Sri Lanka thanks to San Diego firm.

America's most enviromentally concious satellite phone company, San Diego based All Road Communications,, has donated two Iridium Satellite Phones to the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society,

All Road donated two Iridium 9505a Satellite Phones to the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society, in addition to solar panels and 1000 minutes of airtime valued at over $5,000.

"The Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society is focused on helping to conserve and preserve the dwindling biodiversity of Sri Lanka, including saving the endangered elephant population of Sri Lanka. We believe that these satellite phones will, in some small way, help them achieve their goal," said All Road's Chris Hoar.

“Three elephants die each week in Sri Lanka due to conflicts with humans. The phones donated by All Road Communications give us immediate contact with our staff in the bush, which helps us reduce the number of elephant deaths each year," said Ravi Corea, Executive Director, Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society.

Satellite phones enable users to communicate anywhere on Earth, in areas where cellular phones and radios do not work.

"I believe that we, as a company, have an opportunity, and an obligation, to help make a measurable difference to organizations like the Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society. For a few thousand dollars we can help these dedicated individuals save the lives of magnificent creatures like the Sri Lankan elephant. That's what we call a great return on investment," said Hoar.

All Road Communications rents and sells satellite phone equipment for the Iridium and Globalstar satellite phone systems. All Road also offers mobile high speed internet access for rent or sale via the InMarSat network.

All Road is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For a free quote visit or call 1-888-884-7623 anytime.
