Sri Lanka’s Wildlife & Cultural Treasures
Tue August 20, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Sri Lanka is a global biodiversity hotspot backdropped by the intriguing remnants of a sophisticated 2,000-year-old kingdom. Today, a journey to this mythical island famous for its tea and aromatic spices delivers a bounty of nature and culture that’s far off the radar for most tourists. Take a virtual adventure with Nat Hab Expedition Leader Toby Sinclair into Sri Lanka’s 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, golden beaches where great blue whales ply the waters, and 12th-century ruins that are the playground of toque macaques, leaf monkeys and grey langurs. The 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 really does have it all.
