save trincomalee deer
Trincomalee- City where people and deer live together. ” Save Trincomalee Deer” project initiated by Rotary Club of Trincomalee after seeing several deer in Trincomalee died by consuming polyethene. The reason was searching food in the town and some eat the polythene bags with vegetables.
The project is to provide a resting place for the deer with a natural shelter, drinking water facility, cement platform for feeding and provide vegetables. The Trincomalee Urban Council join hands with Rotary Club of Trincomalee by providing an area and supporting the activities. The Project was initiated with the funds from a donor in Australia. Currently Rotary Club of Trincomalee is feeding the deer two times per day with the vegetables collected from various places.
Since July 2021, Lanka IOC is partnered with Rotary Club of Trincomalee and sponsoring the feeding activities.
