Kosala Rajapaksha:

On the loose with a long lens in Sri Lanka and Saskatchewan

Kosala came to Canada from Sri Lanka 15 years ago and since 2007 he has worked for the Canadian animal genetic resource programme of Agriculture Canada where he is involved in conservation of farm animals. He much enjoys photographing the rich wildlife populations he sees around him. In his presentation he will show the diversity of wildlife of Sri Lanka and Canada. Sri Lanka, despite its small size (one tenth of Saskatchewan), is well known around the world as a hotspot of biodiversity. There are more than 4000 species of flowering plants, over 100 freshwater fish, over 50 amphibians, 174 reptiles, 435 birds, 140 mammals and countless invertebrates. Alas, we cannot mention all of them.

Starting in January, 2019 our monthly meetings will be held in the following lecture theatre: Room 1130, Health Sciences E-wing, at the University of Saskatchewan Campus.
