Bundala National Park

Bundala National Park, located in Sri Lanka, is a remarkably distinctive national park, despite being one of the country’s smallest. Situated in the southeastern region, it shares its boundaries with a protected coastal area. This park comprises a diverse landscape featuring marshes, lagoons, and sand dunes.

Remarkably, it holds the distinction of being declared the first wetland in Sri Lanka in 1991, designated as a Ramsar site in recognition of its immense significance to areas rich in biodiversity, particularly wetlands. Moreover, Bundala National Park is globally renowned as a vital habitat for migratory birds. It boasts an impressive roster of approximately 230 bird species, comprising both indigenous and migratory varieties, with a significant representation of wetland avian species.
