Sri Lanka reopens zoological gardens and national parks

Sri Lanka has reopened all zoological gardens and national parks for visitors from Monday (15).
Director-General of Wildlife Chandana Sooriyabandara has told the local media that the Udawalawa, Minneriya, Kaudulla, Wilpattu, and Pigeon Island National Parks will be open for visitors from Monday.
Visitors who have already booked accommodation can make a new reservation for any day convenient for them and the available days are published on the Department of Wildlife Conservation website.
According to reports, the Wilpattu National Park was opened at 6 a.m. on Monday and visitors were admitted to the premises after following necessary health procedures.
A similar process was adopted at the Udawalawa National Park, the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, and the Ridiyagama Safari Park, local media reports stated.

OSL take:

The reopening of zoological gardens and national parks is in preparation for the reopening of the country to foreign travellers scheduled to take place by August 1st. Authorities however are looking at the possibility of reopening the country earlier than scheduled. Sri Lanka’s tourism industry is one of the main revenue generators of the country as well as the fastest expanding economic sector in the country. The island has also been listed as a must visit destination by many leading global travel publications. This has resulted in many international brands expressing interest in entering Sri Lanka’s tourism industry and an expansion of business opportunities in the sector. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry.
