Gehan de Silva Wijeyeratne who is based in the UK has authored and photographed over 300 articles for national and international newspapers and journals on Sri Lanka’s biodiversity. Wijeyeratne conducted a very interesting and interactive session with the audience through his personal narratives and PowerPoint presentations, mentioning that Sri Lanka is one of the best all round wildlife destinations in the world for a mix of big game and marine life.

Shanika Dissanayake, Consul General of Sri Lanka in Guangzhou welcoming the participants to the event stated that the Consulate General is keen on publicising the rich and diverse wildlife in Sri Lanka which is in total contrast to the size of the country. It was further stated that this is the first event for 2018 hosted by the Consulate General under its cultural and educational activities series.

Attendees comprised of Chinese travel agents, industry specialists, government officials and members of the print and electronic media.
