[2012-01-05 10:43:21]

Expanding facilities for nature lovers who wish to spend their days with birds in their natural habitat of Chundikulam, an echo-friendly Holiday Resort was declared open on Tuesday (03) in close proximity to Chundikulam bird sanctuary by the Commander Security Forces Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe.

Chundikulam Birds Sanctuary stretches over 49.2 sq km on the northeastern coast of the island. The landscape offers a striking view of the nature inhabited by various kinds of local and migrant birds. Especially, from November to mid January one who travels across this birdsí park can see different species of birds migrated from other countries. According to environmentalists, some species come here to lay and hatch eggs since the temperature here is conducive for breeding.

The natural environment here is also rich with flora and fauna endemic to the North making the park ideal site for researchers, students, ecologists and nature lovers who could experience the existence of biodiversity within a limited area, half-surrounded by the Indian Ocean and spotted with green jungle patches, and fresh water ponds amidst silver sand dunes.

This nature park becomes second only to the Kumana birds park and its natural beauty was once destroyed by LTTE terrorists with their activities.
