LANDSCAPES AND SITES:
Geographically, our strategic plan focuses on three Priority Landscapes selected based on their conservation significance, level of pressure on biodiversity, and WWF-Laos’ ability to have a meaningful impact. Within each of these broad landscapes, we further focus our efforts on four Priority Sites.
- Annamite Landscape
- Nam Poui Landscape
- Mekong Plains Landscape
- Xe Sap National Protected Area
- Nam Poui National Protected Area
- Xebanghieng Riverscape
- Siphandone Riverscape
These Sites and Landscapes are key habitats for target conservation species or species groups of global and regional significance. Conserving these habitats, species and overall biodiversity ensures the health of ecosystems that provide necessary services to the people of Laos and beyond.
Eco-region and National Priority Species:
Saola, felid and carnivore species, Lao and regionally endangered primates,
Mekong aquatic megafauna, gaur and sambar deer.
