Tiger Landscape: Lower Mekong Forests
The Lower Mekong Forests are a mix of lowland and highland tropical deciduous, semi-evergreen and evergreen forests.
WWF's work in this landscape includes:
- Securing tiger habitats
WWF has identified core areas and corridors for protecting and monitoring tigers and other key species.
- Capacity-building for protected areas
WWF has helped strengthen the management of key protected areas, especially improving law enforcement to reduce poaching and trade and promoting sustainable forest management.
- Trade prevention
WWF's Greater Mekong Programme and TRAFFIC have active wildlife trade campaigns to raise awareness, particularly in Vietnam where there is little support for wildlife conservation or sustainable trade.
- Human-tiger conflict resolution
WWF is working with local communities in Vietnam and Lao PDR.
