Thank you to everyone who attended the public lecture at the Lakshman Kadirgamar Institute on the 5th of April 2012. There's nothing better than talking to a full house, particularly one full of people who I know care about protecting Sri Lanka's natural heritage as much as I do.
Not only did I feel extremely honoured to be delivering a talk within the beautiful surrounds of the LKIIRSS but I was most pleased that Arjan agreed to do the welcome address. Arjan is a mentor to my generation of marine scientists in Sri Lanka and has contributed immensely to our knowledge of the waters around our island.
