The development  of the destinations is part of a community-conservation project funded by the UK's Darwin Initiative. It is a partnership between the Myanmar non-profit organisations 'Grow Back for Posterity' and Myanmar Bird and Nature Society and the UK's Harrison Institute. The project has also received valuable support from the University of Mandalay.

PLEASE help us to conserve the wildlife of the Ayeyarwady River. 
We NEED you to join our wildlife survey and monitoring project. 
So, please record all the wildlife sightings (especially birds and dolphins) that you observe on your visit to the villages of Hsithe and Myitkangyi.
To help you we have put together a bird identification guide (see below),  a reporting sheet and provide binoculars. We welcome all reports so please give your sheet (however incomplete) to the boatman. Of course, you can also send reports direct to me at We would also like to receive photographs
of the wildlife, the date and a little bit of information about where you saw the wildlife - for example 'near Hsithe'
or 'on the boat to Myitkangyi' etc.
For those with an interest, we have recently published a report on
Natural Heritage of the Upper Ayeyarwady River
