Perhaps the wildlife of Ampara is more diverse than the human population.

From the leopard to the colourful peacock and from the huge Palu tree to the microscopic mushroom, the diversity is unimaginable. Hence we strongly advise you to behold it with your own senses.

World famous Kumana Bird Sanctuary is a must while you may not forget the other Sanctuaries and National Parks. Gal Oya National Park is hiding the place where the Gal Oya river meets the Senanayake reservoir, Makara, inside its bosom. Lahugala, historically famous for its rich elephant population, is not poor in other life forms.

But in addition, the little woods dotted along roads and highways, man made lakes and other water-bodies and many other unnoticeable places are full of wildlife. You only need to look.
