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"

"Electricity is like magic": a Q&A with Shoon So Oo
Shoon So Oo is the energy programme manager at WWF-Myanmar. He’s one of the people behind ‘The Renewable Energy Vision’ – one of the most ambitious programmes of its kind. The Vision aims for 100% renewable energy by 2050 for Myanmar. Shoon believes it can happen, and he’s convinced that what the energy programme does is as close to magic as you’ll get in the real world.
All over the world there are ordinary people doing extraordinary things for our planet.
