Forty years ago a young man with a masters degree in Agriculture in his pocket set out for Sri Lanka to be employed in a well established and reputable foreign company the same nationality as his. Born in 1922, the son of a well known paediatrician of his day, he was never in want and need never have left his homeland, but the spirit of adventure that compelled some people to leave their country and go to another urged him on. Little did he know then that he would carve out for himself a niche in the progress of this country, namely in the field of wildlife and nature conservation. Sri Lanka would also become his second home. Of all Europeans i have met he is one of the very, very few who has a deep and abiding love for the country he worked in.
