In Sri Lanka nature is considered as sacred. The world's first Wild Life Cuntuary was created by King Devanam Piyatissa (nn B.C.) on the request of Arahath Mahinda Thero (the sun of Great King Dharmashoka) who brought buddism to Sri Lanka.

The King was on a deer hunt when he was called by his name. The King ......

The Arahath Mahinda thero adviced the King 

"Dear King .. The animal who live in the land, the birds fly in the sky, and the fish swim in the river has a right to life like you and me. As the King you are not there owner, but the protector and the rular"

The King declared the Ambasthala (Currently Mihintale) forest a wild life santuary and ordered his men and countrymen not to kill any animals in the forest.
