PRCF Myanmar works in the Ker Shor Ter communities, Natmataung National Park, Karen communities, Rakhine Yoma Wildlife Sanctuary, and the Pauk Sa Landscape to conserve wildlife habitats. Many of these areas are habitats for gibbon and other endangered wildlife facing destruction.
We establish community conservation groups and build capacity of those groups to protect these wildlife habitats. By engaging communities in activity planning and implementation, these conservation efforts can continue long after PRCF projects are complete.
Local cultural arts
Cultural arts of communities in Myanmar are threatened by decreasing natural resources used for the arts. PRCF Myanmar protects local cultural arts through building community capacity to use natural resources sustainably, connecting cultural arts to markets in which products can be sold, and empowering older generations to engage younger generations in practice of the cultural arts.
PRCF Myanmar is engaged in a country-wide survey of gibbon in order to better understand their current population and habitat areas. As research is conducted and complete, we work with local communities to preserve gibbon habitats and raise awareness of gibbon conservation needs.
