Visitors: Jacob and Johanna De Vlas

Dr. Jacob De Vlas and Johanna De Vlas-De Jong were visitors here a few months ago.  Jacob and Johanna are avid nature lovers.  

They have written two books on Sri Lankan wild flowers (I have a link only to the older)
The book contains mention of 1,060 species of flowers photographed throughout Sri Lanka, including very rare plants, some that are new to
Sri Lanka.

 Dr. de Vlas is a colleague/friend of Dr. Michael van der Poorten a leading butterfly expert (lepidopterist) in Sri Lanka.  He too made a lightning visit to Wilpattu House.
