The devastating cyclone Nargis struck the southern part of Myanmar early in May 2008. The delta area of the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River was devastated. Yangon, the largest city in Myanmar, was also struck. There is an area in the Ayeyarwady delta where the aim is to conserve the mangrove ecosystem. This is the Meinmahla Kyun Wildlife Sanctuary.

To conserve the representative ecosystems, a Biosphere Reserve program is being implemented. Ten biodiversity rich areas of the country have been designated as Biosphere Reserves applying the UNESCO/MAB criteria.

The sloth bear is a Schedule 1 species in the Indian Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, and has been listed as "threatened" by IUCN. No systematic information is available on sloth bear distribution and population either in or outside the protected areas in India.

Sloth bear (Melursus ursinus) is one of the widely distributed large mammals in India. At the same time, the sloth bear has suffered as much as other large mammals from human impacts on forested areas. The North Bilaspur Forest Division, Chhattisgarh, which an un-protected area, harbours a large number of sloth bears.

Habitat destruction and the accompanying loss of wildlife are among the most common and far-reaching impacts of armed conflicts on the environment.

As disturbed forests increase in protected areas in the tropics there is a clear need to assess their conservation values through studies of their vegetation and animal communities. However, Thai protected area managers lack data on how ecosystems respond after human disturbances. It was therefore the aim of this research to provide some guidelines to determine the changes in vegetation cover following abandoned settlement areas and the relationship between abandoned settlement areas and bird assemblages.
