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 act as a Rapid Action Team (RAT)
ready to respond to urgent threats faced by our forests 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, non 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.
We are currently looking for Sponsors (both Corporate and Individual) for our projects. Corporate Sponsors will be recognized through our web site. If you are interested in supporting our projects, please click here to complete the Sponsorship request form.
