Landscape conservation in the Greater Mekong region
These large areas support many of the rarest and most distinctive species in the region, including Southeast Asia’s largest populations of tiger, elephant, and saola.
Additionally, we coordinate closely with WWF-China to ensure effective protection of the headwaters of the Mekong—high on the Tibetan Plateau.
Approximately 28% of these focal landscapes is under formal protection. WWF works through partners to extend this landscape approach to other critical conservation areas in the Greater Mekong region.
