Nature heeds no boundaries. Like latitudes and longitudes they are only superficial, but not for humans. So it comes as no surprise when authorities and environmentalists are once again bickering over the boundaries of Sinharaja. In 2011 The Nation brought to the readers’ attention, construction of the road between Imbulkanda and Suriyakanda, in the article titled ‘Sinharaja Fork in the road’. It was a matter of widening a footpath that had existed for 200 years.
