The University of Sri Jayewardenepura’s Rotaract Club is making the 4th wave with its latest endeavor, “Aquatica Wave 4.” This bold initiative is a witness to their commitment to preserving ocean ecosystems and leaving a positive impact on both land and sea life. Through a series of precisely planned activities, they aim to ignite public awareness about marine conservation. Following are the exciting phases of this transformative project.


Phase 1: Unveiling the Secrets of Coral Reefs

The journey begins with a captivating webinar on coral reefs, led by Ms. Kushlani N. Dissanayake, a lecturer at the University of Ruhuna’s Department of Oceanography & Marine Geology.Participants delved into the vibrant world of coral ecosystems, discovering their vital role in biodiversity, coastal protection, and climate resilience.

Phase 2: A Day of Volunteering at Induruwa Sea Turtle Conservation Center

Next, volunteers immersed themselves in hands-on conservation work at the Induruwa Sea Turtle Conservation Center. From feeding turtles to cleaning enclosures, participants gained invaluable insights into the importance of safeguarding these majestic marine creatures.

Phase 3: Planting the Seeds of Change with Mangrove Plantation

The spotlight then shifted to mangroves, as members from the University of Sri Jayewardenepura’s Rotaract Club and the Pamunugama Rotaract Club joined forces to plant 2,000 baby mangrove plants at Negombo Lagoon. This collaborative effort not only bolstered coastal resilience but also raised awareness about the crucial role of mangroves in supporting biodiversity.

Phase 4: Restoring Coral Reefs, One Dive at a Time

In a bid to revitalize degraded coral reefs, embarked on a coral restoration program at Mirissa Turtle Bay. Their efforts to support natural coral growth in Ahangama underscored the importance of preserving marine biodiversity for future generations.

Phase 5: Cleaning Up Our Shores with Parley

The journey concluded with a beach cleanup at Wellawatte Beach, sponsored by the “Parley” organization. Armed with determination, participants collected 80 kg of waste, ensuring the preservation of coastal habitats and mitigating environmental risks.
