Zoo organizes video clip contest for visitors

The Dehiwala National Zoological Gardens has organized a best video clip competition for visitors from April 8 to 22 for the New Year school vacation, Director General Bashwara Senanka Gunaratne told the Daily News.

He said that visitors can use video recorders in hand phones for this competition. The competition will be held under two categories. Participants can either capture any movement of the animals or behaviour of the visitors in the zoo. The maximum length of a video clip should be two minutes, he said.

He said that the winners will be selected by a panel of judges and the best three video clips from each category will be offered gifts and certificates. Merit certificates will also be offered, he said.

The Director General said that a ceremony to announce for the three, four-month-old pygmy hippopotamuses born at the zoo will be held on April 20. A tame, juvenile elephant will be brought to the zoo from the Pinnawala elephant orphanage on April 22. People will be allowed to view these animals from 3 pm onwards on this day, he explained.

Gunaratne requested the public to visit the zoo during their vacation and participate in these events.
