Save the Lanka Mangrove Museum

The pandemic and an unprecedented economic collapse in Sri Lanka shuttered this first-of-its-kind museum, built as part of our nationwide conservation project from 2015-19. Beginning this Earth Day, you can help us reopen this unique museum and support the dedicated volunteers who have maintained it through extraordinarily difficult times.

Sri Lanka Mangrove Conservation Project

  • Over 14,500 hectares of mangrove forest have been demarcated and educational sign boards have been installed in almost 50 lagoons and estuary systems;
  • In 2017, the project propagated 703,800 mangrove seedlings;
  • More than 7,900 women and young people have been trained in mangrove conservation and 2,893 have received microloans to create or expand sustainable businesses and foster financial stability.
