Species

Despite Bhutan’s landscape entertaining a huge geographical diversity and incongruous climatic conditions, this tiny Himalayan country has an interesting outlay of biodiversity and ecosystems embedded together. There are more than 770 birds, 200 mammals and 5,400 of plants.

Some of the exquisite wildlife found in Bhutan are Tiger, One-horned rhino, Golden langur, Leopard, Snow leopard and Red panda. Also adding to a bird watcher’s delight, many winged residents can be observed such as Black necked-crane, Hornbills, Barbets, etc.

Currently, WWF Bhutan is engaged in conserving the following key species:
