COLOMBO (News 1st) – Environmentalists have warned that the marine life in the Diyawannawa Oya and other wetlands are at risk due to the increase in the number of Red-eared sliders or red-eared terrapin, a semiaquatic turtle.
This carnivorous species was first introduced to the country in 1990 as ornamental pets.
Environmentalist Attorney at Law Jagath Gunawardena said a large number of Red-eared sliders can be seen in the local aquatic ecosystem.
