Sri Lanka has one of the highest species densities in the world including a number of endemic plants and animals. It is one of the best places in the world for seeing Blue Whales, Sperm Whales, Leopards, Asian Elephants and Sloth Bears, dubbed Sri Lanka's 'Big Five'. Wild Sri Lanka brings together all of Sri Lanka's top wildlife stories, many of which have come to light only in the last few years. Further chapters detail wildlife watching opportunities for primates, birds, reptiles, turtles, butterflies and dragonfliesg a description of the parks and reserves by habitat type; and a wildlife watching calendar to help plan a trip. Throughout Wild Sri Lanka there are extracts from 'A Naturalist's journal' which, in the form of a first-person commentary, take readers to specific habitats in search of the wildlife to be found there.
