In a bid to ensure visitors have more time to spend at the Dehiwala Zoo, a decision was taken to extend its visiting hours.

Accordingly, the zoo will be open for the public from 7.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. from the month of September, Wildlife Minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera said recently.

The minister said additional attractions would be established at the premises.

However, the Daily Mirror was unable to obtain further details about the changes at the zoo.

    One of my favourite zoos in the world. I am looking forward to see the my favourite friends, the Gorillas and the Hippos. I prefer to see Elephants in the wild.

    Dehiwala zoo is a disgrace. Once upon a time it was good when major Weiman ran it.Now even the food that is for the animals are stolen and the animals neglected. Time to close it!!!
