Hambantota District Secretary W.H. Karunarathna says that steps have been taken to set up bee colonies along the borders of forests to minimize wild elephants encroaching to villages in the district.

He said this project could help prevent wild elephant rampage in vulnerable villages to a certain extent.

Plans are afoot to set up bee colonies in Sooriyawewa as the village is constantly attacked by wild elephants. 

District Secretary said this project will be expanded to other vulnerable areas later.
