COLOMBO (News1st): The Dahaiyagala elephant pass bridging the Udawalawa National Park and the Bogahapattiya-Soragune forest is considered the biggest elephant pass in the country.

With the intervention of the Wildlife officers, an attempt to clear a large part of the elephant pass was prevented.

However, it was revealed today that an area in close proximity to the Bogahapattiya forest that comes under the Forest Conservation Department of the Dahaiyagala Elephant pass has been cleared.

The deforestation has taken place in an area close to the Karakote, Pelessa, Unakanda and Kilimbunna villages.
