Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka?s only evergreen rainforest, the Sinharaja forest, is a unique and pristine forest. More than 60 percent of its trees are endemic and many of them are considered rare. There is also much endemic wildlife in the forest, especially birds, mammals, and butterflies, as well as many kinds of insects, reptiles, and rare amphibians.

This magnificent thirty thousand acre rainforest was declared a ?Man and Biosphere Reserve? by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1978. [more]
