Conservation of green peafowl in the proposed A Yun Pa Nature Reserve, Vietnam

Thinh Vu

The green peafowl is the galliform species at most immediate risk in Indochina. The species has dramatically declined, or even disappeared, in most of its historical range in recent decades. The overal goal of this project is to make contributions to understanding the status and distribution, as well as to save one of the most endangered bird species in Vietnam. The team includes young conservationists participating in activities ranging from field surveys to conservation education. Project activities will be focused on providing updated information on the status of Green Peafowl in A Yun Pa nature reserve; enhancing capacity in wildlife monitoring and conservation; and reducing pressures, especially hunting activities by local community members to targeted species.
