Wildlife Department stated that stern action will be taken against those who trespass the Sri Pada forest reserve and the Seven Virgins forest reserve.

Officers attached to the Nallatanniya Wildlife office said that five persons lost their way in the forest last week after they entered the forest to watch elephants.

The wild animals have been gravely disturbed last week as the security forces and residents entered the forest reserve in search of the missing persons.

Wild Life department has planned to set up ‘no entry’ sign boards at places where people have easy access to the forests.

Once such warnings are set up, legal action will be instituted against those who enter the forests.
