Flora & Fauna

 
 

Forests and woodland, producing about 80 percent of the world's teakwood, cover about half of Myanmar. The dense tropical forests in Lower Myanmar contain extensive stands of timber and oil-bearing trees, including commercially valuable teak forests. Myanmar is also endowed with a rich variety of habitat types arising largely from its unusual ecological diversity.

It is home to nearly 300 known mammal species, 300 species of reptiles, about 100 bird species, and many edible species of freshwater fish. Since the country is also a heaven for about 7,000 species of plant life, the potential worth of plant species in Myanmar is considerable.

Myanmar considers such a rich pool of biodiversity as an important national asset, and the government of the Union of Myanmar has drawn up strict regulations to protect its reservoir of biodiversity and biological resources.
