The Forest Healing Foundation is a non-profit organization protecting and restoring forests in Sri Lanka.

Their mission is to conserve high biodiversity forest and regenerate degrading land. As the frightening realities of climate change become ever more apparent, they are committed to caring for the forests around us and ensuring their health for climate mitigation as well as biodiversity protection. Healthy forests help with erosion control, water retention, oxygen production, temperature control and habitat provision, amongst other benefits.

They are also strong believers in the health benefits of forests for people and continue to raise awareness of the energizing and wellbeing-enhancing properties of forests. They encourage people to spend time in the forests to really connect with them, to understand their value and to become conservation advocates themselves.
