Sri Lanka mangroves featured on CNN

February 6, 2020

CNN recently sat down with the leaders of Sudeesa, our local partners in the Sri Lanka Mangrove Conservation Project, for a feature on that country’s efforts to protect its mangroves. The brief video report explains why mangroves are so important in efforts against fishery depletion and climate change, and interviews Sudeesa co-founder and former Seacology Prize winner Anuradha Wickramasinge about how local communities are leading the charge to protect and restore these important wetlands.
