Lampi Marine National Park
Lampi Marine National Park was declared ASEAN Heritage Park in 2003. It protects evergreen and mangrove forests, beaches and dunes, coral reefs, seagrass, and rich biodiversity, with over 1,000 recorded species.
The Lampi Marine National Park covers a group of islands in the Myeik Archipelago in the Tanintharyi region of southern Myanmar. The Myeik Archipelago consists of over 800 islands dotted along 600 kilometers of coastline in the Andaman Sea. The area is covered by tropical evergreen rainforests and is surrounded by an extensive coral reef system.
Wildlife Conservation Society
Wildlife Conservation Society's goal is to conserve the world's most significant wild places in 15 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the world's biodiversity.
This is outlined in their 2020 strategy, which positions WCS to maintain its historical focus on the protection of species while developing an ambitious plan to engage with a rapidly changing world.
The challenges are greater than ever, but with the focus, dedication, and passion of a committed staff combined with a unique mixture of field, zoo, and aquarium expertise, WCS will continue to set the bar for science, conservation action, and education that has driven our success in protecting wildlife and wild places for over a century.
Turtle Survival Alliance
The Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA) was formed in 2001 as an International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) partnership for sustainable captive management of freshwater turtles and tortoises, and initially designated a Task Force of the IUCN Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group. The TSA arose in response to the rampant and unsustainable harvest of Asian turtle populations to supply Chinese markets, a situation known as the Asian Turtle Crisis.
Since forming, the TSA has become recognized as a global force for turtle conservation, capable of taking swift and decisive action on behalf of critically endangered turtles and tortoises.
Fauna & Flora International
As the world's oldest international wildlife conservation organisation, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has built a reputation for its pioneering work and science-based approach to conservation. FFI has been supporting conservation work by local civil society organisations in Myanmar since 2008, and is one of the first international conservation organisations on the ground as Myanmar began to open up in 2011.
Their work ranges from community-based conservation to collaborative protected area management, and from site-based conservation to landscape- and seascape-level conservation approaches, such as the ridge-to-reef conservation project in Tanintharyi and our freshwater ecosystem conservation programme in the upper Irrawaddy basin.
Programs In The Near Future...
Lampi Foundation is looking to develop a program to educate local villagers and fishermen to manage waste. We hope to collaborate with Refill Not Landfill, an established worldwide non-profit organization with the intention to inspire, educate and promote an action-based program that engages whole communities to clean their environment and reduce their consumption of single-use plastic.
