The Hunuwela Tea Estate, is home to a wealth of endemic and globally threatened organisms; some of which have been identified in the region for the first time, making these natural habitats very important for the overall conservation of Sri Lanka’s biodiversity.
The study, conducted by IUCN, is a part of Dilmah’s conservation efforts, to develop a management plan and improve the overall ecological integrity of the natural areas that lie within the tea estates.

It is an imperative need to recognize the variables affecting our ecological infrastructure, as a preliminary step towards devising strategies towards climate resilience.
Dilmah Conservation in its proactive commitment towards nature, will establish a research centre to closely observe the changing climatic patterns within Sri Lanka that could help in shaping policies towards climate adaptations.

Coccocarpia stellata, a very rare species of lichen, found in humid and high elevations above 1600m, was first recorded in the Indian sub-continent under the Novel Species Programme, that uncovers a previously unknown variety of flora and fauna.
The initiative by Dilmah Conservation was started to fill the void in the existing knowledge and support conservation efforts.

Every infinitesimal change in our environment has the potential to lead up to a consequence of large magnitude. The vagaries of the changing climate are woven into the intricacies of our economies, livelihood, and environment.
Upholding its philosophy, ‘business is a matter of human service’ Dilmah Conservation takes the first steps towards addressing climate and its impact with the first climate change research station in Sri Lanka.

We need our oceans as much as the fish do. Our oceans are home to around 2.2 MILLION species. Let's work together in preventing further pollution of our precious waterways.

Here are a few reasons to why you should care for the environment:

1. When the environment becomes unhealthy we too become unhealthy. The pollution of air and water can lead to various health problems such as respiratory and waterborne/water related diseases, respectively.

2. The overall temperature of Earth’s atmosphere is increasing due to the release of greenhouse gases – global warming – resulting in changes in climate patterns around the world.

3. For the sake of the future generations who will inherit the world we leave. We owe it to them to take care of this precious planet we call home.

4. Biodiversity – it is essential to our continued survival. Providing us with the very air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we consume and the materials we need to build shelters and other necessities through the many natural processes performed by various species.

5. There is only one Earth.

Conservation efforts have been successful in shifting the status of Giant Pandas from ‘endangered’ to ‘vulnerable’. This is a great example of how we can make a difference for the better in the lives of these precious animals.

Did you know that butterflies actually taste with their feet! These delicate creatures, who more than occasionally flutter into our gardens, in fact have their taste sensors located on their feet.
‘Common Butterflies of Sri Lanka’, written by Himesh Dilruwan Jayasinghe, delivers a detailed introduction to these graceful insects from their well-known life cycle to their impressive protective mechanisms. The publication primarily comprises of a colourful and comprehensive visual guide, identifying 100 different species of butterfly commonly found in Sri Lanka. In addition, 196 plants which play an important role in their population and distribution are listed in hopes of aiding the conservation of these beautiful winged creatures.
If you are interested in knowing more about butterflies, grab a copy of this publication available at the Dilmah t-lounge at 62/2, Block B, Chatham St and 30, Bauddhaloka Mawatha (Arcade Independence Square).

Zebras (Equus burchellii), a close relative of horses and donkeys, are one of the world’s most uniquely painted animals. Native to Africa, these social animals can usually be found grazing and grooming each other in herds in the vast African plains of countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia and Angola to name a few. There are four species of zebras, which are Grevy's zebra, Plains zebra (the most commonly found), Mountain zebra and Hartmann's zebra (not recognized as a separate species by most), all varying from each other be it their habitats or their conservation status.
Though their unique black and white striped coats and trendy mohawks may look very conspicuous to us it is in fact believed to play a role in their camouflage. According to National Geographic, the stripes of the zebra make it hard to distinguish them apart when they are all together, thus predators are unable to single them out when they run as a herd. These stripes are also believed to help keep smaller predators, such as bloodsucking horseflies away by making them appear unattractive.

Castlereagh reservoir, located in the Nuwara Eliya district of Sri Lanka, is as vital to surrounding wildlife and human life as it is picturesque. Unfortunately, the reservoir and its immediate surroundings are subject to heavy pollution due to open dumping of waste and lack of effective solid waste management. To solve this issue Dilmah Conservation (DC), through #BiodiversitySriLanka (BSL), is facilitating extensive awareness programs, including incorporating the importance of preventing waste pollution in school curriculum. Through this project a committee on waste management that brings together many local authorities and other stakeholders, including the Central Environmental Authority, Urban Council, Divisional Council, Zonal Education Office, Ceylon Tea Trails, etc. has formed. The committee aims to shoulder the responsibility of reducing pollution and protecting Castlereagh reservoir through development and sustainable implementation of an integrated Conservation Plan of Action. BSL and DC aims to use the success of this committee as an example, and encourage similar action in other problem areas.
