Biodiversity surveys

Indo-Myanmar Conservation conducts a variety of field-based surveys to research the natural biodiversity of the Indo-Myanmar Hotspot. Survey work began as part of the Asian Turtle Program’s work conserving tortoises and freshwater turtles; however, given the pressing need to document and understand the extent of wildlife diversity in Southeast Asia, the scope was expanded.

In Vietnam, much of the conservation efforts concentrate on large, charismatic mammal and bird species, while other taxa are often ignored. IMC aims to focus its work on these other, underappreciated species.
