Our Cause

Plants grown through community nurseries in the buffer zone of the Singharaja World heritage site will be made available to registered participants to plant in identified vulnerable areas. Such areas as lands prone to landslides, waterlogged and polluted areas to conserve water security, degraded agricultural lands, buffer zones of protected forests are considered vulnerable. The overall objective is to strengthen vulnerable ecosystems, create bio-links between forest fragments to facilitate migrations and educate the general public in the need for sustainable practices and a greener future.

Why join with us

Many similar projects are available today where environmentally conscious groups are attempting to increase the green cover in Sri Lanka. However, the success of plant survival is key to the success of the project. Success of survival is dependent on several factors such as selecting suitable plants to be planted in suitable environments. RRI’s expertise and experience is in restoring degraded and abandoned lands to their original forest states. Hence, to ensure success RRI follows a simple 3 step approach;

  • Step 1: Preliminary risk assessment and gap analysis of the land. Suitable plants are selected based on these analyses.
  • Step 2: Planting is conducted during favorable climatic conditions in accordance with Analog forestry practices to ensure that a natural forest is established along with all its complexities
  • Step 3: Continuous monitoring for a minimum of 3 years to guarantee successful growth

Aims and Objectives

Increase

Increase the availability of endemic and indigenous plant species

Awareness

Increase awareness of sustainable agriculture through practices of Analog forestry

Restore

Restore over 300 acres of protected forest buffer areas

Save

Reduce forest fragmentation and save threatened species from the brink of extinction

Promote

Promote planting of forest tree species among the general public so as to increase the forest cover in Sri Lanka

The aim of this campaign is to


strengthen vulnerable ecosystems, create bio-links between forest fragments to facilitate migrations and enrich educate the general public in the need for sustainable practices and a greener future.

Reduce your individual Carbon footprint...

A tree is simply not just a means of shade or food but an infinitely more complex system which is part and parcel of our planet’s life cycle. A single leaf is responsible in the balancing of Carbon dioxide and Oxygen.

At this moment, we are destroying this simple process through widespread deforestations across the country.

By destroying this, we have caused an increase in global temperatures, a change in weather patterns and the melting of polar ice caps. If Carbon emissions occur continuously, the adverse effects of climate change will be potentially disastrous to all living organisms.

Though Sri Lanka CO2 emissions per capita fluctuated substantially in recent years, it has tended to increase by 2016 ending at 0.887 metric tons.

Hard to believe but true, Not to worry……. You can reduce your carbon foot print by supporting “Tree planting” because as trees act as carbon sinks to soak up carbon dioxide.

If you are willing to reduce your carbon foot print, Just plant 5 trees annually………(Around 5 trees will fix 1 tonne of carbon dioxide)

It will reduce your Carbon foot print.......
