Visitors can feed animals at Dehiwala Zoo

Local News Update: Tourists to Dehiwala National Zoological Gardens are now allowed to feed the animals with approved food, Assistant Director Dinushika Manawadu said. This decision was taken by the zoo authorities to discourage tourists from engaging in illegal feeding of the animals, she said.

She further said that for any animal those interested in feeding the animals should make a payment to the ticket counter and contribute to the allowed portion of meal.

Under this process, no outside food is required to be offered to the animals and only the foods produced by the zoo itself will be permitted, the assistant director pointed out.
