Conservation

With our partners, Conservation Carbon Company and Rainforest Rescue International , we are helping to protect Sri Lanka’s forests. Hiniduma, in the southwest of Sri Lanka, is a mixed agricultural community surrounded by one of the island’s last remaining rainforest ecosystems. We are working with farmers in forest-edge communities along the Kanneliya Reserve buffer zone. Together, we have instituted the Hiniduma Conservation Carbon Programme, which will grow more endemic forest trees to protect against fragmentation and eventually reverse the process of centuries of deforestation.
