Arrangements are in place to develop the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage as a Green Garden.
The Programme has been planned on the instructions of Minister Basil Rajapaksa. It has planned to establish a green environment akin to a natural forest for the benefit of the elephants. There are more than 80 elephants at the Orphanage. It is hoped to plant trees such as Nedun, Satinwood and Nelli. Thus it would be an attractive location for the local as well as foreign tourists.
