Luang Prabang montane rain forests

WWF Abstract

The Luang Prabang Montane Rain Forests ecoregion is globally outstanding for its diversity of bird species, despite the fact that more than 70 percent of the original forest has been lost as a result of shifting cultivation. Scientists are unaware of any endemic mammals or birds existing here, but that may be due to this ecoregion’s inaccessibility and lack of biological surveys. The areas that do remain intact present strong opportunities for large mammal conservation.
