The Central Environmental Authority states that a wildlife zone will be established in the  Muthurajawela wetlands.

The CEA authorities stated that the Wildlife conservation zone, sensitive areas under the CEA and zones under four Divisional Secretariat divisions will be established as wildlife zones.

Accordingly, this zone will be preserved under the wildlife conservation ordinance.

Hence, surveys are to be conducted to identify the areas to be demarcated and measures are being taken to identify the private lands that will come under this wildlife zone and acquire them, the CEA said.
