Hambantota Wild Elephant Management Reserve will be gazetted next year

Minister S.M. Chandrasena says that the Hambantota proposed wild elephant management reserve will be gazetted next year.

He mentioned this during a discussion and the Hambantota District Secretariat.

The meeting took place to discuss steps to be taken to prevent the human elephant conflict. Several issues have arisen due to legally not separating the Wild Elephant Management Reserve although an area has been allocated.

Illegal acquisition of lands for various projects during the recent past has also led to many problems.

Discussions took place to minimize the problems. A group of people including MP Namal Rajapaksa were present on the meeting.
