World Wildlife Fund, Inc. opened its new Myanmar office November 1 in an event that highlighted the countrys vast natural capital, its efforts to develop a green economy and its diverse species such as tigers, elephants and Irrawaddy dolphins. The event featured representatives of Myanmars Government, Ambassadors and diplomats, local and international NGOs, foundations and members of the business community. Former Myanmar Ambassador to the US and Presidential Advisor H.E. U Than Swe spoke about the importance of protecting Myanmars biodiversity and the need to work together to tackle major challenges like illegal wildlife trade and deforestation. WWFs contributions are vitally important. Appreciate and thank all of colleagues here for interest and technical cooperation and generous efforts to help Myanmar. Wish all staff well for successful mission. The event featured a ribbon cutting and tree planting at WWFs new office in Yangon.

The country is home to three of Earths most pristine rivers (Irrawaddy, Salween and Mekong), at least 250 mammal species and more than 1,000 bird species. Its forests are some of the most extensive and intact in Southeast Asia and it has huge potential for tiger recovery.
