1998 the Living Lakes network has been initiated by the
foundation Global Nature Fund, a global network of environmental
partnership organisations striving for the protection of
lakes and wetlands worldwide.
The vision of Living Lakes is that all lakes, wetlands and
freshwater bodies of the world should be healthy ecosystems
and when used by humans, it should be sustainable without
damaging the environment.
Current Living Lakes initiatives include the following:

· Restoration of Mangroves, Education and Reestablishment of
Livelihoods in Sri Lanka
Solar Lakes – Promoting Renewable Energy and Energy
