St. Benedict’s young nature photographers go into the wildsView(s):
The Nature Photography Society of St. Benedict’s College held its first wildlife excursion to Wilpattu National Park recently, kindling the interest of the budding nature photographers among its ranks.
The excursion provided many opportunities to photograph the elusive Sloth bear, spotted deer, brown fishing eagle, Serpent Eagle, and the aptly named – Prince of Nelumvilla, a living legend among the leopards at Wilpattu.
The Society’s executive committee headed by president Aaron Johnpillai with team members Shenal Perera, Theron Surendhran and Sai Thanaruban, was grateful for the support of Rev. Bro. Dr. Pubudu Rajapaksha, Director of St. Benedict’s College who generously arranged school transport for the journey, and Dudley Thambinayagam, whose sponsorship met a substantial portion of the costs, as well as their Masters in Charge, Hiru Amaraweera, Damitha Perera, and Dharshana Dias who helped them all the way. They were also thankful to their school driver Mr Melbourne.
Safari jeep drivers Sadun Dushmantha, Randhika Gayashan and Malith Kaushalya tirelessly led them through Wilpattu along with skilled tracker Lahiru Dissanayake, the team said, enabling them to have a memorable experience.
