Conservation of Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest

Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest is the last virgin rainforest left in Sri Lanka. While many fragmented rainforest patches exist, none of them can match the endemism of Sinharaja Rainforest. To protect the virgin Sinharaja Rainforest, we have carried out many campaigns to stop encroachment as well as destruction of its streams for mini-hydro projects. Further, we intend to setup a Conservation Centre on the way to the main entrance in Kudawa where future conservation work can be carried out effectively. We request individual and corporate sponsors to contact us and help protect Sinharaja Rainforest for future generations.
