In the spring of 2005, the Global Nature Fund (GNF), in close collaboration with its Living Lakes partner organisations in Sri Lanka, started a project with the aim of offering new life perspectives to the affected people in the South-Western Sri Lanka. With the help of donors from Germany and a grant from the Swiss company „Sika“, the first small restoration activities were started. In December 2005, GNF and its partners won a grant from the European Commission in order to implement a prestigious project in Sri Lanka. A central activity of the three-year project is the protection and rehabilitation of threatened mangrove forests in the Bolgoda, Maduganga and Madampeganga wetland regions.
