The Hurulu Forest Reserve in Sri Lanka is a thriving ecosystem with a variety of creatures. It was designated as a biosphere reserve in 1977. The forest reserve is a very important habitat of the Sri Lankan elephant. The animal is known for its migratory behavior and does so especially in the dry season between the forests situated around the area.
The Hurulu forest reserve represents the dry-zone dry evergreen forests, Sri Lanka. There are many other protected areas situated around Hurulu Forest Reserve. Ritigala strict nature reserve, Minneriya-Girithale and Mahaweli floodplains nature reserves.
There is no record of the number of people who live in this forest reserve. Cultivation is their main means of living. In recent times the expansion of human settlements and forest clearance have resulted in a human-elephant clash. Translocation is the conventional solution taken to solve the issue.
Habarana is a popular location for Jeep safari. A three-hour ride safari in a four-wheel jeep gives the traveler a good opportunity to get closer to the Elephant and wildlife. A large number of elephants, Indigenous and migrated bird species, reptiles, deer, hawks, peacock, and many other wild animals can be seen in there natural habitats.
