Environment Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa has given directives to declare the Gin Oya environs as a protected zone with immediate effect.

This decision was taken considering the uncontrolled human activities taking place in Gin Oya surroundings.

It was reported that the Gin Pol mangrove variety which is frequently found in these environs is threatened due to human activities. However, stern legal actions could not be taken against these individuals since it was not declared as a protected zone, the Minister observed.

This matter was brought to the notice of the Minister by Wennappuwa Divisional Secretariat Nirosha Namaratne at a meeting held at Wennappuwa Divisional Secretariat Division Auditorium on Solid Waste Management last Friday.

Central Environmental Authority Chairman Charitha Herath said that the Gazette notification to declare Gin Oya as a protected zone would be prepared shortly.
