Northern Thailand-Laos moist deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

These forests are largely devoid of wildlife. Although you would expect to find large populations of tigers, bantengs, and elephants in the fertile river basins and moist forests of this ecoregion, illegal hunting has driven most of these mammals to the vanishing point. The loss of large trees has similarly devastated bird populations.
