SLT-FOGSL Sinharaja awareness programme (2006-2010)

Sri Lanka Telecom continues its partnership with the Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka (FOGSL) aimed at raising awareness among the youth and younger students of Sri Lanka on the importance of nature conservation. The Sinharaja Forest, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the few surviving rainforests in the world. We conduct a two day workshop every month wherein twenty students and five teachers take a tour into the forest reserve, attending a series of lectures and presentations conducted by Prof. Sarath Kotagama, who is also the Head of Zoology, University of Colombo. This workshop is complemented with field trips as well. As a synopsis of the workshop, the students are encouraged to conduct their own research, resulting in assignments modulated by FOGSL and presented in handwritten books. Having launched this programme in 2006, by the end of 2009, 32 programmes  were conducted with the participation of 642 students and 144 teachers from 32 schools around the country.
