Wildlife is beautiful a global treasure. But wild things cannot protect themselves. They need the help from people, agencies, business and governments to survive. [Nam Kading; protected species]


Red Junglefowl
The Red Junglefowl is one of the most common pheasants in Laos and is the founding stock for our domestic chicken. They live in forested areas and near human settlements if not heavily hunted. National laws allow rural communities to hunt Red Junglefowl for subsistence but it is illegal to sell the meat to urban markets. [Nam EtPhou Louey; managed species]
