Sri Lanka is one of the most biologically diverse countries in Asia, an asset best reflected in her national parks and reserves, home to thousands of different spices from leopards, elephants, sloth bears, and brightly colored birds. Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park and Wilpattu National Park have the largest populations of wild leopards in the world.
