Now everyday we hear about wild fire. It looks like pre-planned action to clear all these areas. Very soon there will be no rain and Sri Lanka will be another Ethiopia or Sudan.

Knuckles is one of the most important ecosystems in the country and is a world heritage site hence the government must have a proper conservation and protection plan for it. While ensuring incidents like this will not happen in the future the government must extend the area of the valuable site
