Situation of large reptiles in the Ayeyarwady delta after the cyclone hit

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.
