In celebration of the National Tree Planting Day, Monday 15th November, a tree planting event was conducted on Sunday 14 th November at the Bellanwila-Attidiya Sanctuary, the site of WNPS’s ‘Green Isle Project’. The initial idea and commitment came from Seyara and her friends from Visakha Vidyalaya to plant 100 trees of recommended species. A highlight of the event was the planting of 5 saplings of the endemic Crudia Zeylanica, which was believed to be extinct in the wild.
In 2020, Wildlife and Nature Protection Society (WNPS) initiated Sri Lanka’s first-ever Life Insurance Policy for the employees of the Department of Wildlife Conservation (DWC). The program which continues in its second year has so far provided Life, Permanent, and Partially Disability Cover to 2,670 DWC employees.
