Environmentalists charge that no action has yet being taken against those involved in illegal construction activities at the Wilpattu National Park.

Environmentalist Ravindra Kariyawasam said that over 300 illegal dwellings have been constructed in the Northern region of the park.

He noted that the bio diversity at the sanctuary has been largely affected by the illegal constructions.

Minister of Wildlife and Conservation, Vijith Wijayamuni Zoysa, said that in response he had requested the enviromentalists to seek legal redress.
