Wildlife Department limits safari jeep passenger numbers to five

Following the government’s decision to open all the National Parks in the country from yesterday, the Wildlife Conservation Department has instructed park officers to restrict the number of persons allowed on safari jeeps to five.

Several health awareness seminars have been held about the implementation of health regulations to prevent further spreading of the coronavirus.

Wilpattu National Park Warden Chamath Lakshman, along with the staff attached to its headquarters, held awareness programmes for safari jeep drivers at the park. Public health inspectors from Nochiyagama also took part in them.

The Wildlife Conservation Department has also instructed to all national park staffers to restrict the number of safari jeeps to 80 per day. All staff members have been advised to wear masks as well.

Furthermore, the department has also permitted the launching of e-ticketting services so that tourists could reserve tickets to the park online. All visitors to national parks are encouraged to use the Wildlife Conservation Department's official website to book their tickets.
