Measures are being taken to promote the Wilpattu and Yala National Parks to the international level.

A special programme is underway to develop them as international wild life parks. The circuit bungalows of the Wilpattu National Wildlife Park, which were ravaged due to terrorist activities were renovated and inaugurated under this programme. A tourism information centre was also set up. The work was carried out under the patronage of Minister S.M. Chandrasena and Deputy Minister W.B. Ekanayake. The natural habitat of the Wilpattu national park is further being developed. Arrangements are underway to construct 4 more circuit bungalows for local and foreign tourists.
