Project Description

THAILAND AN AMAZING BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOT

Biodiversity is the variety and variability of living organisms and their ecosystems. Thailand is a true biodiversity hotspot, in every sense, with a fantastic array of bio-diversity across its geographical ecosystems including: nearly 1000 bird species; 15,000 plant species; 1721 terrestrial vertebrate species; 2000 marine fish species; 11,900 marine invertebrate species; 2000 marine mollusc species; 1000 orchids species, 3000 fungi species; 294 mammal species; 360+ reptile species; 160+ amphibian species; 570 species of freshwater fish. As well as 7000 known species of arthropod – which is believed to be only 10% of the actual arthropod total in Thailand. The country is a true magnet for any nature enthusiasts and new species are being discovered and scientifically described all the time.

Our gallery aims to give the viewer a rare insight into Thailand’s richness of biodiversity in its national parks and wilderness areas. It shows some the best pictures from our conservation archive that show species diversity and species interactions.
