Dear Friends & Supporters
Thank you for your generous donation in support of our Sri Lanka Plant a Rainforest Project.
Rainforest Rescue has been working in partnership with Rainforest Rescue International based in Galle, Sri Lanka, since 2008 to combat the effects of deforestation by employing local people to plant trees to create a rainforest corridor between the two largest remaining rainforest areas in south-west Sri Lanka; the Sinharaja Forest Reserve and the nearby Kanneliya Forest.
The Sinharaja Reserve is regarded as one of the world’s 25 biodiversity hot spots with very high levels of endemism. Sadly it is also one of the last remaining forest patches and one of the most threatened ecosystems in Southeast Asia.
Funding provided by generous Rainforest Rescue supporters over the past five years has contributed to
Recently we undertook a review of our conservation projects and have decided to concentrate our conservation efforts within Australian and the Asia-Pacific Region. As such we will no longer be continuing with our Sri Lanka Plant a Rainforest Project.
Thank you so much for supporting this worthwhile project. For further information on our projects please visit our website at www.rainforestrescue.org.au.
