Naval Dockyard, Trincomalee declared a Domain of Green and Blue

On the sidelines of Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva’s visionary concept to implement the environmental protection pilot project – “Neela Haritha Sangramaya”, the Naval Dockyard in Trincomalee has been declared a Domain of Green and Blue.

The Naval Dockyard is a spectacular territory spanning over 850 acres covered by vegetation and surrounded by deep blue ocean. The dockyard is home to over 9,000 naval and civil personnel and it is often frequented by a large number of local and foreign tourists. As such, the Navy, with its noble effort, endeavours to inspire those who visit this stunning piece of land and change their attitudes in making the whole county a Domain of Green and Blue, coupled with right motivation. Hence, the Naval Dockyard is expected to be developed as a model and regulate it often to motivate the general public to take a leaf out of that book and be more green and blue activists.

As part of declaring the Naval Dockyard a Domain of Green and Blue a large number of initiatives including mangrove plantation, turtle conservation, tree plantation, beach cleaning, public awareness programmes, coral replantation and conservation, energy conservation, solar power projects, water conservation, bio gas projects, waste water management, recycling of plastic and polythene, conservation of wild animals, rain water harvesting projects, sewage treatment projects, paper recycling projects, creating paper free office premises and encouraging community for legal fishing practices have been set in motion.
