We the undersigned hereby request the Commonwealth games moved out of Environmentally Sensitive areas in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka's Environment and Wildlife is set to receive massive destruction due to the Hambantota 2018 Commonwealth games proposal. The area proposed by the
authorities is one of the last remaining strong holds for the endangered Leopard, Elephant and Sloth Bear, as well as countless other endangered flora and fauna that
plays a crucial role in Sri Lanka's rich but declining bio-diversity. Over the last few years, the once lush green Island we grew up has gradually started to become a concrete jungle.
Once the bio-diversity is lost, Sri Lanka will loose it's popularity with eco tourists, and it's people and tourism will suffer. Hence, we urge you to take immediate action to stop amending
the flora and fauna act to permit buildings near nature reserves and move the Commonwealth games out of Sri Lanka's wilderness.
