Planting at govt. Veterinary offices in Mannar

A migratory bird at Murunkan, Mannar

Reforest Sri Lanka was able to obtain approval from govt. vet offices in Mannar for tree planting. It was seen that there are many bare lands belonging to these offices. For example at Murunkan, 25Km from Mannar town, many endemic as well as seasonal birds and other animals take refuge in the sparse forest areas. We have also suggested that this way the farmers and locals can also be educated on the importance of trees and forests. We hope to establish upward of 50 trees in these offices and we will update the website as we progress with this activity.
