What you can do
The Hurulu Forest Reserve in Sri Lanka is a thriving eco system with a variety of creatures, which was designated as a biosphere reserve in January 1977. This park is an old teak plantation which has been transformed to grassland. During the rainy season, the Minneriya and Kaudulla tanks fill up reducing the grass lands available to the elephants. During these times, the elephants come to Hurullu Wewa for grazing on ‘elephant grass’ available abundantly in this park. The numerous small herds of Elephants that inhabit the surrounding region for most of the year gather together on the open bed of the main tank to graze, drink, bathe and socialize.
