在斯里蘭卡,原本對野味的需求主要來自遊客,但武漢肺炎封鎖下,食野味的需求卻變成以當地人為主,所以國家公園內的非法獵殺野生動物並沒有減少。而近日更有一名25歲的護林員在巡邏時被偷獵者殺害。事件促使當局採取行動,政府亦為反偷獵行動提供軍方支援。

In Sri Lanka, demands for bushmeat usually come from tourists, but because of the COVID-19 lockdown, it has shifted to local communities, and the poachers have not stopped hunting illegally in the national park during this period. A 25-year old ranger was killed by poachers when patrolling recently, and his death has urged the authorities to take action, and the government has offered military support for the anti-poaching operations.
