There have been some queries about all the concern that we are raising about Raja’s disappearance from the Uda Walawe national park.

True he was never a ‘permanent resident ‘of the park. But ‘like
a prayer’ he used to visit the park during the months of July-Oct each year.
…Ongoing research by Dr Shermin de Silva & Ashoka Rajeeva has recorded his presence
in the park as follows –

· 2005 June
· 2006 July
· 2007 July

· 2007 Oct
· 2008 June
· 2009 July
So now it’s almost November 2010 and Raja has not been seen this year in the park…that’s why we are worried..!
