President says Right to Life of Wildlife must be ensured

Animals and plants species must be given the right to live in the same environment as humans and the humans must ensure the right life of wildlife, said President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, marking the World Wildlife Day today (03).

In a Social Media remark, the President noted that following the environmental policy of expanding the country’s forest cover from 29 per cent to 32 per cent in the next five years, plantation of one million tree every year and wildlife conservation reforestation programmes will be implemented.

“Today is World Wildlife Day. More than 8,400 species of wildlife around the world are on the verge of extinction, even on a day like today while we celebrate the safety of all animals and plants.

Human is not the only inheritor of the environment. Animals and plants species must be given the right to live in the same environment as humans. This is why attention has been paid to this matter through our policy statement, “Vistas of Prosperity”.

Following the environmental policy of expanding Sri Lanka’s forest cover from 29% to 32% in the next five years; plantation of one million tree every year, wildlife conservation, reforestation programmes will be implemented throughout the country. The prime focus of all these endeavours is to ensure the right to life of wildlife. And it must be remembered diligently.”
