Drawing on his wide experience in tourism, as well as studying and observing wild elephants, he presented a very strong case where the world-wide interest in the Sri Lankan elephants can be leveraged to promote Sri Lanka tourism.

There were several interesting discussions during the Q & A session, as well as during tea and fellowship, which followed at the Galle Face Hotel terrace.

The event was sponsored by The Responsible Tourism Partnership (RTP), a Sri Lankan-based NGO, which has been in operation since 2007 and works towards improving livelihood through tourism, and who is an associated partner with the GSLH Project.
