Sri Lanka is among the world’s 34 biodiversity hotspots. It is also among the 10 most countries affected by climate change. Extreme weather events including droughts and floods, intensify competition for resources, increased human activities threaten the survival of many species and fast disappearing natural habitats continue to lead to devastating consequences in our natural environment. The British Council and WNPS wishes to work together with you, and is about changing this equation.
The Youth Wing of the Wildlife and Nature Protection Society of Sri Lanka (WNPS) was established in 2017. Throughout the past few years, it has broadened its network via 58 schools islandwide, spreading the message of conservation. With the vision of ‘stirring the passion in the younger generation, to be the change for a ‘better tomorrow’ in wildlife conservation and environmental protection in Sri Lanka, Youth Wing plans to involve more youth in wildlife conservation while educating them on the importance of our island’s beautiful wildlife and ways to conserve it for the future.
Join us for an interactive online event and a Q&A session with Sriyan, Jehan and Zainab from the WNPS Team.
