Gal Oya National Park

The Gal Oya National Park is found south east of Sri Lanka in the eastern and Uva provinces and is 25,900 hectares in extent. It was ideally established to protect catchments of the Senanayake Samudraya (Senanayake Lake).

In addition to elephants, the park is home to Spotted Deer, Leopard, Bear, Sambhur, and Wild Boar. Among other wild life found here are several species of monkey, porcupine, a number of fish, reptiles and butterfly species that include the Crimson Rose and the Glassy Tiger.

Gal Oya’s rich and abundant wetlands comprising savannah grass and other lush green growth, provide ample natural habitat to many species of Wild Life. Migratory birds that include the Painted Stork, Cormorant, Teal and Pelican could be seen here. Endemic species such as Malabar Horned Bill, Grey Dove, Ceylon Frogmouth, Ceylon Spur fowl, Jungle Bush Quail, Painted Partridge, Yellow Legged Green Pigeon, Paradise Flycatcher, Asian Koel, White Bellied Sea Eagle, Forest Eagle Owl, Little Scops Owl, Fish Owl and the Brown-Capped Pygmy Woodpecker are found here, among many other beautiful birds.
