Tropical Sri Lanka may be best known for its aromatic spices and an eclectic 2,000-year-old culture, but the small island nation off the southern tip of India teems with natural wonders— including the world’s highest concentration of leopards. Take a virtual trip with NHA Expedition Leader Toby Sinclair into this biodiversity hotspot’s bounty of wild areas, historic sites and national parks. A veteran regional conservation leader and BBC’s Natural History Unit Sri Lanka field producer, Toby delivers us to cloud forests brimming with colorful birds, virgin rain forests that are home to Asian elephant herds, 12th-century ruins that are the playground of Toque macaques, leaf monkeys and grey langurs, and golden beaches where great blue whales ply the waters. Join us to explore the wild side of Sri Lanka, one of the world's most up-and-coming destinations.
