United Dendro Energy joins hands with the Department of Wildlife Conservation to protect the wetlands of the Bundala National Park. - 18 Feb 2013

United Dendro Private Limited (UDE) – a subsidiary of the LOLC Group, in collaboration with the Department of Wildlife Conservation (DWC), initiated a programme to eradicate invasive plant species Prosopis juliflora and Opuntia dillenii around the tidal plains in Malala and Embilikala of the Bundala National Park. These invasive plants have encroached the habitats of wading birds and endemic species, posing a threat to the park's bio diversity.

This programme will attempt to clear out 454 hectares of infected land within a projected period of 5 years. Remnants of the removed invasive plant species would be directed towards the production of electricity, the output of which would be synchronised to the country’s national grid.
