Sri Lanka, roughly of the size of Ireland, is ranked among the top eight bio-diversity hotspots in the world. Dramatic landscapes ranging from wet lowland rainforest and dry thorny scrublands punctuated with rocky outcrops are home to leopards, sloth bears, wild elephants and a variety of reptiles, while the rich coastal habitats are renowned for their marine life. The island nation is also hugely popular among birdwatchers, as the country is home to 33 bird species that can only be found here. The popular parks and reserves include Yala National Park, which has the highest density of leopards, Sinharaja rainforest, home to many varieties of birds, Uda Walawe and Minneriya, both elephant habitats, and the coastal region of Mirissa, an excellent place for spotting blue whales, dolphins and sperm whales
