Balangoda Reforestation & Ecosystem Restoration Project (Ongoing in 2022)

Rajawaka area is located in the border of wet zone and intermediate zone with a range of different landscapes, rich biodiversity from Elephants, leopards to plenty of natural bee colonies, different and uniquely diverse ecosystems. Plenty of mountains and forest department managed lands including other state forests are either scrub forests or grasslands full of “Maana”, “Pangiri” or “Illuk”, which are highly invasive and fire friendly. For decades, these grass/shrubland including mountains with important catchment blocks have been continuously burnt down by intentional man made fires. The project aims to initially reforest 15 acres of degraded land currently under the Department of Forest Conservation (with signed MOU), which is being Sponsored by Hemas Consumer Brands.
