3 acres of forest destroyed daily in the last 2 months!

Three acres of forest land has been cleared each day during the previous two months, National Coordinator for Centre for Environmental and Nature Studies (CENS) – Ravindra Kariyawasam says.

Mr. Kariyawasam further warns that if the president does not take measures to put a stop to this massive forest destruction, the forest cover of the country could be deeply impacted.

Speaking on the recent environmental disasters in the areas of Anavilundawa and Wanathavilluwa, Mr. Kariyawasam said that many valuable trees were destroyed.
