Electric fence to be renovated
The electric fence which was built covering the Wasgamuwa Sanctuary
located in the boundary of Matale district is now in dilapidated state
and is bringing the threat of the wild elephants again and it would
cause difficulties to the public in adjacent villages.
Therefore the Wild Life Conservation Department has taken steps to
renovate this fence again. It is lying from the right bank of Mahaweli
river to the Hibitiyakada area. After completing this fence, over 20
villages in the area will benefit from it.
