Navy takes to beach cleaning with a view to making pollution-free coastal belt around the island


The Navy, as part of its wide array of conservation programmes, conducted another beach cleaning drive at several beaches located in the southern part of the country today (10th August).

This programme was organised by the Southern Naval Command to clean-up Jakotuwella beach in Galle, Paravi Wella beach in Tangalle and the beach of Mirijjawila. The beaches which had been polluted due to a number of reasons were restored to their previous status due to Navy’s efforts.

Since, having pollution-free beaches in the country is a collective responsibility of the general public, the Sri Lanka Navy takes much interest in maintaining a beautiful coastal belt around the island at all times. As such, the Navy would be able to conserve the beach as well as it’s dynamic environment for the future generation.
