Rain Forest Exploration in Sri Lanka

Rain Forest Exploration

Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface, but that figure has now dropped to a worrying 6% and is still falling (experts predict that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years). In light of this terrible forecast, Sri Lanka has declared all of their rainforests as protected areas, not only to maintain their natural beauty, but to ensure the essential recycling of carbon dioxide into oxygen and protect their rich bio-diversity.

A rainforest can be described as an extremely stable eco-system because it experiences rain for more than six months of the year, so it is hardly surprising that in Sri Lanka they are all located in the wet zone areas.

Made up of a massively complex structure of tall trees, a wild profusion of flowers and a vast array of birds, insects, reptiles and mammals that are all interdependent on each other, there is no end to what may be discovered during a rainforest exploration in Sri Lanka . The awe-inspiring experience cannot be described in any words or shown in photos that would do it justice - try it for yourself and see!
