We share our home with some of the world’s last tigers and asian elephants, but Myanmar’s forests are falling silent. The animals are disappearing.
Their homeland is being cleared for roads and farms. They are being killed, their body parts sold at illegal markets.
"Myanmar could lose its wild elephants in a matter of years."
"Roads fragment wildlife habitat and give poachers better access to wildlife."
"As elephant habitat shrinks and the human population grows, the two species are forced to live closer together."
It's not too late. Together we can make Myanmar a safe haven for wildlife, and play a leading role in global conservation.
"An overwhelming response to Myanmar's first conservation campaign has brought new hope for the elephant population"
"Saving one of the region's last home to tigers"
"Wildlife in the DTL now has round-the-clock protection from poachers"
FROM THE FIELD
UK AMBASSADOR TO BURMA DANIEL CHUGG IS A RANGER FOR A DAY
"Rangers are vital to the future of Myanmar", said British Ambassador to Burma H.E Daniel Chugg, who we work closely with on illegal wildlife trade issues. We went with him to one of our ranger camps to see first-hand what rangers do. Watch our video to experience what it's like to be a Myanmar ranger.
PRODUCING SUSTAINABLE RUBBER IN MYANMAR
In 2018, we took the world's leading tyre companies to Myanmar's rubber-producing region: Tanintharyi. Myanmar can become a leader in sustainable, natural rubber and this can be a great source of income for local communities. Watch our video to see how tyre companies can support and benefit from Myanmar's natural, sustainable rubber.
