Wild Holidays project for students to adopt plants

ECO-TOURISM: "People will be compelled to wear protective masks before long unless society is not going to address the dangers of extinction due to pollution, Eco Adventure Tourism Chairman Wild Holidays, Major Vijith Welikala said.

A press conference was held at "Thotupala " in Piliyandala last week to brief the media on the danger Sri Lanka is facing due to the diminishing forest cover which has depleted to 3 per cent when it should be a minimum of 10 per cent.

Welikala said that it has become a priority to increase the forest cover ,which absorbs Carbon dioxide from the environment which is of prime importance for human existence.

Mindful of the corporate social responsibility, Wild Holidays launched a programme on Vesak Poya day titled "Adoption of million trees" in an attempt to keep a satisfactory ratio of jungle cover and trees.

Under this project, participants would not merely plant trees, but every person will be encouraged to adopt and preserve at least one tree. Since it is very important to educate our young generation about this situation participation of school going children in this programme will be given priority, Welikala said.

School children from different parts of the country will be given a plant each to adopt with a practical knowledge at Thotupala under this project.

He invited the public and conscious organisations to join this ambitious project to save our future.
