Cleaning Bundala National Park

Posted on by Jaya

Over 100 students from schools around Tissa volunteered to help clean Bundala National Park on March 28th.

Mr Teddy and I helped the Central Environment Authority and the Department of Wildlife & Conservation to organise the event.

Students from Uduwila, Nadigamwila, Ikkapalama, Weligatha, Tissapura, Thelulla and Pallemalala Schools visited the park.

They heard a number of talks about increasing environmental awareness.

Then they helped to clean litter from the beach.

Bundala is a wetland sanctuary. It has a lot of lagoons and many different types of birdlife including flamingos.

Most of the children had never had an opportunity to visit the park before.
