Monkeys to China for breeding purposes: Ministry | Sri Lanka News

The Agriculture Ministry revealed today that the toque monkeys are to be taken to China for breeding purposes, Ministry Secretary Gunadasa Samarasinghe said.

He said a Chinese company called Animal Breeding Limited had requested the 100,000 toque monkeys. To implement the request, the ministry opened a forum to express the views of various parties. Environmentalists, farmers, the public, the tourism industry, religious leaders and scientists can express their views on exporting the monkeys.

“While collecting acceptable, justified and better ideas, the ministry is hoping to take the best decision when sending the toque monkeys to China.

“The ministry is hoping to remove monkeys from areas where a large extent of crops are being destroyed by them. There are no intentions of removing monkeys from forests and conservation areas,” the ministry secretary added. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
