Sri Lanka is an island filled with an abundance of natural treasures. The variety of natural habitats from cloud cloaked forests in the highlands, tropical rainforests, a vast network of mangroves along the coastal belt and arid scrub jungle with savannas across the dry lowlands can be compared to that found on an entire continent. The island is one of the most ecologically rich countries in the world, recognized as a global biodiversity hotspot (along with the Western Ghats in India) and has the highest species diversity in Asia.
