The Pearl Protectors

The Pearl Protectors is a volunteer-based organization that advocates towards protecting the marine environment of Sri Lanka. The initiative behind this organization is to create awareness of the imminent threat posed to the marine life, sea area and the beaches of Sri Lanka. The project also advocates individuals who are like minded in safeguarding the marine habitat of Sri Lanka while promoting sustainable, eco-friendly behaviors and initiatives to reduce the human impact on the marine habitat.

Started in 2018, The Pearl Protectors have engaged and conducted various advocacy and awareness initiatives to inspire Sri Lankans to protect the marine environment while becoming responsible citizens. We evaluate our projects based on the level of impact.

Vision & Mission

Our vision is a sustainably protected marine environment in Sri Lanka where human impact does not harm its marine biodiversity.

We strive to protect Sri Lanka’s marine environment by raising awareness about the beauty of marine ecosystems and fostering passionate individuals.
