Myanmar forestry officials to observe ASEAN Heritage Parks in Indonesia

ASEAN countries safeguard ecosystems, biodiversity, culture, and unique traditions through ASEAN Heritage Parks (AHP). Myanmar’s forestry officials will visit AHPs in Indonesia during the last week of June to bolster conservation efforts in Myanmar.
Supervisors from Natmataung National Park, Mainmahla Island Wildlife Sanctuary, Moeyungyi Wildlife Sanctuary, Indawgyi Lake Nature Reserve, Inlay Lake Wildlife Sanctuary, Mount Popa National Park, and Tamanthi Wildlife Sanctuary, along with personnel from the Nature and Wildlife Conservation Department, will go on this excursion from 24 to 28 June.
Myanmar hosts eight ASEAN Heritage Sites, including Khakaborazi National Park, Natmataung National Park, Tamanthi Wildlife Sanctuary, Alaungtaw Kassapa National Park, Mainmahla Island Wildlife Sanctuary, Lampi Marine National Park, Inlay Lake Wildlife Sanctuary, and Indawgyi Lake Wildlife Sanctuary.
In Indonesia, Gunung Leuser National Park, Lorentz National Park, and Kerinci Seblat National Park are renowned AHPs. International visitors frequent these ten national parks annually. Across ASEAN, there are 49 AHPs: ten in Vietnam, nine in the Philippines, eight in Myanmar, seven in Indonesia, six in Thailand, three in Malaysia, and two each in Singapore and Cambodia, with one in Brunei and Laos, respectively.
These excursions aim to enhance the conservation capabilities of ASEAN Heritage National Parks, which are vital for biodiversity preservation. They support human resources and long-term development, improve national park network management, foster collaboration in regional biodiversity conservation, and ensure sustainability for future environmental protection in ASEAN countries. — Nyein Thu (MNA)/TMT
