Ven. Pahiyangala Ananda Saagara thero says that the environment is being subject to colossal degradation as a consequence of large scale tourism development projects being carried out without the wild life and forest conservation department conducting necessary feasibility assessments

Such can be observed at many reserves, including Singharaja and Kanneliya.

The statement was made at a media briefing yesterday in Colombo convened by the Protect Sri Lanka national movement.

However, the department of wild life and forest conservation rejected this allegation issuing a media communiqué which noted that during road constructions, re carpetthe 10 foot wide road would only be re-carpeted and that there will be no impact to the environment through these efforts.
