Dehiwala Zoo attracts many visitors including the North and East

Jun 13, 2011 12:05:05 PM - itnnews.lk

The Dehiwala Zoological Gardens also attracts a large number of visitors from the North as well as the East. There were only visitors from the South to the Dehiwla Zoological Gardens to view the animals. However, school children from areas such as Jaffna, Vavuniya, Ampara and Trincomalee in the North and the East now throng the Gardens. It was witnessed how large groups, including school children visit the Zoological Gardens from very remote areas during every weekend.

Visiting the Zoo was a novel experience to these groups of the North and East, who were earlier restricted to the sounds of gunfire and bomb explosions.
