Designated as a National Park in 1938, Yala is Sri Lanka's most visited National Park. Situated in the dry semi-arid region off the southeastern coast of Sri Lanka, Yala is known for its biodiversity, with over 200 species of birds and over 40 species of mammals. The main attraction of the Yala National Park is its apex predators – the Sri Lankan Leopard (Panthera Pardus Kotiya). An endangered species due to dwindled numbers caused by poaching and loss of habitat, these adaptable big cats take advantage of the bounty of prey on offer.
