Expedition 2011 - Sri Lanka / The Sinharaja Expedition
On the occasion of the 7th Exo Terra expedition, for the first time a country from the Asian continent is explored. The island of Sri Lanka is a herpetological hotspot and a melting pot of the fauna from the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. This expedition brings the team from the tropical rainforests over the highland plateaus and the mountain ranges to the lowland plains in the north of the island.
The aim of the expedition is to photograph, to film and to collect data of the herpetofauna and to make an inventory of the animals occuring in this isolated ecosystem.
