The Wildlife and Nature Protection Society and the High Commission of Canada to Sri Lanka and Maldives are pleased to announce their collaboration on upcoming environmental webinars. These joint virtual discussions will feature Canadian, Sri Lankan and Maldivian environmental experts and activists and will facilitate exchanges of best practices between the Sri Lankan, Canadian and Maldivian environmental conservation communities.
Wetlands play an important role in our natural environment. They reduce the impacts of floods, absorb pollutants and improve water quality. They provide habitat for animals and plants and many contain a wide diversity of life, supporting plants and animals that are found nowhere else.
With Sri Lanka coming out of the worst ever year for its big cats, with over 13 reported deliberate killings, it’s important to look at unique stories of harmony between man and the leopard and adapt possible best practices.
The Wildlife and Nature Protection Society Sri Lanka (WNPS) hosted the first virtual edition of their “Marine Chats” series, chatting with underwater explorer and technical diver Dharshana Jayawardena.
