WEBINAR | Sri Lanka's Wildlife & Cultural Treasures
Sri Lanka is a global biodiversity hotspot with a rich cultural heritage extending back over 2,000 years. Formerly the British colony of Ceylon, Sri Lanka is famous for its tea and aromatic spices. Yet this intriguing island offers contemporary travelers a bounty of natural treasures to discover, too. Take a virtual journey with Nat Hab Expedition Leader Toby Sinclair into Sri Lanka’s wild areas, historic sites and national parks. A veteran regional conservation leader and Sri Lanka field producer for the BBC’s Natural History Unit, Toby shows us cloud forests brimming with colorful birds, virgin rain forests that are home to Asian elephant herds, golden beaches where great blue whales ply the waters offshore, and 12th-century ruins that are the playground of toque macaques, leaf monkeys and grey langurs. This small nation boasts the world’s highest concentration of leopards in Yala National Park, too. Join Toby on this expedition to the wild side of Sri Lanka, a destination that's full of unexpected surprises and rewards.
