6 Acres of Primary Tropical Rainforest Protected!

By Sriyantha Perera | Settlor, Rainforest Protectors Trust

On September 26, 2023, Rainforest Protectors Trust added an additional 6 acres of formerly privately owned forest land into the Protected Buffer Zone of Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest. Having raised only 10% of the required funds and time running out, an individual donor came forward to contribute the balance and save the forest from being clearcut. With this acquisition and conversion of private forest land into conservation forest, Rainforest Protectors Trust has added a total of 30 acres of primary forest to the Protected Buffer Zone as of September 2023. We will continue to identify and acquire additional private forest lands in the region. Through the creation of the Protected Buffer Zone, we will be able to significantly reduce encroachment and illegal activities including poaching and deforestation within Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest.
