"Dahaiyagala" wildlife sanctuary is an environmental system with a very high bio diversity and many endemic species of flora and fauna. It also serves a critical secondary purpose as a “Wild Elephant Corridor”, linking Udawalawe National Park with the Bogahapelessa National Reserved Forest, allowing for the movement of wildlife populations out of Udawalawe National Park.
However, despite its importance, some politicians have started to illegally acquire land and destroy the sanctuary recently.
I am environmental activist and with my team we are fighting to stop this and save the sanctuary. We are however in a financial crisis and we need money for all the legal processes and organize related campaigns.
