About Sri Lanka - Nature Lifestyle

Other Life Styles: Culture | Wildlife | Half Board | Adventure | Weddings | Spa | Golf | Trekking | Heritage | Anniversary | AyurvedicSri Lanka Nature City
Sri Lanka is one of the smallest, but biologically diverse countries in Asia. Indeed, the country is listed by Conservation International as one of the world’s 34 official “Biodiversity Hotpots”. In addition, The Sinharaja Forest Reserve, the country’s last visible area of primary tropical rainforest, is the seventh UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sri Lanka’s high proportion of endemic species is remarkable. Take land crabs: all 51 species are endemic.

Influenced by Buddhist respect for all living beings, Sri Lanka has a well-entrenched conservation ethic. Indeed, Udawattakelle Sanctuary in Kandy is probably the world’s wilderness protected area. There are 12 National Parks and 52 Sanctuaries, which together account for 13% of Sri Lanka’s land area.
