All zoological gardens, forest reserves, wildlife sanctuaries and botanical gardens across the country would be reopened for both local and foreign tourists from June 15, Wildlife Resources Minister S.M. Chandrasena said today.
He said all national parks and zoological gardens had been closed since last March due to COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Treasury had to incur a colossal loss following the closure of these national parks, which generate an annual income of Rs. 7,000 million,” the minister said.
He said the parks would be operated adhering to the guidelines issued by the health and security authorities.
“The maintenance of the parks and feeding of the animals will be done under the relevant guidelines,” he added. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

Put the minister also into the zoo to be exhibited along with the wild animals!. You can put all the Parliamentarians 225 into the zoo so that the masses can see how our politicians have ruined the country for the last 72 years. ,” DEIYO SAKKIE,”
