About Rainforest Protectors of Sri Lanka
Rainforest Protectors of Sri Lanka is a non-profit volunteer organization with a mission to protect the last remaining rainforests in Sri Lanka such as Sinharaja and Kanneliya rainforests
through conservation projects and environmental activism. The volunteers of Rainforest Protectors also engage in investitation and reporting, ready to respond to urgent threats faced by
our rainforests and wildlife.
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.
