The Nature/Bird Studies Programme

SLCDF head office staff along with “The Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka” (FOGSL) team visited Jaffna, Mullaitivu and Kilinochchi on 26th to 28th June 2017.

The “Nature/Bird Studies Programme” conducted by FOGSL concluded successfully in Sudhandirapuram Government Tamil Mixed School and Thevipuram B Government Tamil Mixed School in Mullaitivu and the required facilitation was provided by the SLCDF. As a result of this programme students were able to enhance their affection towards the environment.

During this period the head office staff was able to assess the progress of “Village 2 Markets” (V2M) projects. Visit to Mr Jayasingham’s house was rather interesting as the staff was lucky enough to see his cow’s new born calf.

To gather information and witness the actual disastrous pollution that has currently taken over the Jaffna lagoon area was another highlight of this field visit and it was a motivation for the SLCDF to find a permanent solution for this issue.
