Burma's vast area, diverse geography and lack of extensive urban development mean that it is a haven for all kinds of flora and fauna.
Burma is home to one of the largest remaining contiguous forests in Southeast Asia, and maintains much larger areas of natural jungle and wetland than most of its neighbours. It also boasts a wealth of coral reefs and marine life amongst the sheltered islands of the Myeik Archipelago.
Although hunting poses a threat to many endangered species, more and more efforts are being made to safeguard Burma's native animals, such as tigers, turtles, Irrawaddy dolphins, elephants and rare birds.
