Rain Forest Explorations in Sri Lanka
Discover the breath-taking diversity of Sri Lankan nature  

Rainforests have a mysterious, almost magical air to them and are often called the lungs of the planet for their role in absorbing carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas and producing oxygen, upon which all mankind and animals depend for survival. Rainforests, as you might have guessed, are forests that receive a great amount of rainfall, more than 80 inches each year.

Composed of millions of unique ecosystems, rainforests are the central nervous system of planet Earth and rain forest explorations yield a hotbed of evolution, life, and diversity. Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface, but that figure has now dropped to a worrying 6% and it still keeps falling - experts predict that the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years!

In light of this terrible forecast, the country has declared all its rainforest in Sri Lanka as protected areas, not only to maintain their natural beauty, but to ensure the essential recycling of carbon dioxide into oxygen and protect the rich and fragile biodiversity.

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 rain forest explorations in Sri Lanka. Words or pictures are not enough to describe the awe-inspiring experience; you need to try rain forest explorations for yourself and see!
