On January 27, 2020, Rainforest Protectors Trust expanded its protected area through the purchase and permanent protection of a privately held highly biodiverse 2 acre rainforest bordering Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest and within close proximity to its main entrance gate. The forest was in immediate danger of being clearcut for expanding tea plantations that has resulted in severe deforestation in nearby area. Through funding provided by MAS Active, Rainforest Protectors Trust was able to purchase and permanently protect this beautiful land under the Trust (Photos attached).

Our GlobalGiving project to protect the 4.5 acre riverine rainforest in Ilumbakanda bordering Sinharaja World Heritage Rainforest has so far raised approximately 40% of the funds necessary to purchase the property. We wish to thank all donors who contributed so far. Please help us reach the goal by getting your friends and family to support the project as well as by spreading the word.

Thank you
