Few places on earth have been left untouched by human activities. Between 1970 and 2012 the world saw a drastic 58% decline in mammal, amphibian, reptile, fish and bird species. Every one of these species has a key role to play in the delicate web of life, and together they form the ecosystems we all depend on. This means that the threats we pose to wildlife have lasting repercussions for humans too.
Our wildlife work focuses on saving the remaining populations of tigers and Asian elephants in Myanmar. As umbrella species, by protecting them we are protecting the habitats in which they live along with the other flora and fauna living there. To do this we are working with the government to monitor and protect wildlife including establishing a wildlife ranger college to train those on the front lines of wildlife conservation, and to end the open sale of illegal wildlife products in Myanmar – essential steps if the country is to protect its natural heritage for future generations.
The responsibility of protecting Myanmar’s awe-inducing wildlife rests firmly on all of our shoulders. Wildlife still lives here, and we have the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of our neighbouring countries and to turn this story into one of hope, rather than regret.
"Implement species conservation, illegal wildlife trade suppression, wildlife research and monitoring, tiger recovery, elephant conservation and zero-poaching, as well as support management of protected and conserved areas."
“Nature and wildlife conservation are crucial in balancing ecosystems, and urgently needed in developing countries like Myanmar. This is mainly to ensure sustainability and so humans can live in harmony with nature.”
“I am working on the conservation of species in Myanmar - especially the tiger and Asian elephant.”
“I have always aspired to conserve wildlife and I am very happy to actually be doing this. I am particularly proud of my involvement in protecting Myanmar’s wildlife. My work brings me closer to nature, and every day is different with new challenges and excitement.”
“Wildlife monitoring and supporting conservation related research activities.”
“I feel responsible to make changes so this world can become a better place for both wildlife and people.”
“I support the Landscape program management team and capacity building in communities”
“I have a lot of experience making thematic maps as well as with spatial database management and analysing satellite images for forest cover. With these skills I am happy to be able to provide our conservation team with the maps they need to make the right decisions in their field, and to be able to share my knowledge and give training to communities in order to improve their skills and become more effective in their management with spatial technology.”
