Press Conference on Deforestation in Wilpattu Forest Complex

EFL, in partnership with several other environmental organizations and concerned parties comprising The Coalition to Protect Our Natural Heritage, held a press conference to address the deforestation in the Wilpattu Forest Complex. The aim of the press conference was to inform the media and general public on the forest clearing taking place in the forest reserves adjacent to Wilpattu National Park and clarify the accurate ground level situation amidst several distorted and untrue claims. The panelists included EFL Chairman Dr. Eric Wikramanayake and EFL directors Dr. Sevvandi Jayakody and Rukshan Jayawardena, as well as other representatives from environmental organizations. EFL distributed maps depicting reserve boundaries as well other informative materials to journalists present.
