Sinharaja Rain Forest

Sinharaja is a lowland tropical rainforest of global importance showing certain affinities with rainforest of south and north-east India, Indonesia and Malaysia. As a result of long isolation in the shelter of the central mountains of Sri Lanka, as well as being separated by ocean from other regional rainforest, Sinharaja displays a high level of endemism in the composition of both its flora and fauna. As such it warrants special protections. Indeed, the bulk of Sri Lanka’s remarkable bio-diversity is concentrated in rainforest such as Sinharaja, along with those of the peak wilderness and the knuckles range. 22,000 acres in extent, the Sinharaja rainforest amount to only 10 percent of the remaining forest to only 10 percent of the remaining forest cover of the wet zone of Sri Lanka.
