[Ambassador report] [BIODIVERSITY]

by Thawdar Aung | 07-05-2019 02:05 Comments 7 Comments recommendations 1 recommendations

I questioned to myself "what is biodiversity?" as it is far from my studying field and I learnt that it's meaning is simple biological+diversity= biodiversity. However, to maintain the ecosystem and certain species is not an easy work in real world as it's definition. When one of species is extinct day by day or may be it may take years, our ecosystem, our mother earth will become in troubled somehow. 

As we can see in international and local news, some part of the world are under control for its emergency state. As for Myanmar, there is one species called Ayeyarwady Dolphins which can see in some part of the southern Asia, are now only left 62. The reason is the species itself is a rare one plus some electrofishing gangs and pollution in the rivers are the main cause. Consequently, The government and some environmental experts are now in the process for the best solution and we, local are also ready to help as much as we can.

In particular  , Myanmar is moderately rich in biodiversity.  The country has now a lot of protected areas and last month , 8  more aquatic creatures ( Pondicherry shark, Sting ray, Pipe fish, Narrow sawfish, Whale shark, Seahorse, Seagrass, Corals reef )are protected fully by the law. 
These are some of protected areas in the whole country,

1) Alaungdaw Kathapa (National Park )
2) Lampi Island ( Marine National Park )
3) Htamanthi ( Wildlife sanctuary )
4)  Inle Wetland ( Bird sanctuary )
5) Popa ( Mountain Park ), etc.

However the country is rich in biodiversity, if each and everyone of us do not treasure and protect it, no doubt we will lose those precious species and areas which in turn will harm human being one day.

    Hi Thawdar,

    Thank you for writing this report. It was glad to hear that Myanmar is rich in Biodiversity and the country has a lot of area protected. With rapid changes happening in environment these days, it is really up to NGOs and the government to protect the endangered species with appropriate regulations and actions. I sincerely hope that Myanmar government will do a great job in preserving the biodiversitically rich environment in the country.

    Hello Thawdar

    Thank you for sharing your personal opinion on biodiversity and a good example of endangered animal in Myanmar. Just as you claimed, every specie of animals and plants have their own roles in ecosystem and if biodiversity is not protected, whole ecosystem will be threatened. Also, the example of dolphins is one of the best example of how animals become extinct due to over hunting. Thank you for your report!

    Greetings Thawdar,

    Indeed, the richness of diversity in terms of animals should be protected.
    It is bit a relief that the governments and environmental experts are taking actions to preserve the Ayeyarwady Dolphins.
    Also, it is nice to see that there are some protected areas across Myanmar. I hope the country can continue to maintain their richness in biodiversity.
