Nominierung des Hkakabo Razi als Weltnaturerbe unter den Kriterien 9 und 10
The Hkakabo Razi Landscape (HRL) is located in the northernmost tip of Myanmar, bordering several important protected areas located in China, India and Myanmar. Comprising the Hkakabo Razi National Park, a planned extension thereof, and the Hponkan Razi Wildlife Sanctuary, the HRL is considered to be the last remaining large functioning ecosystem of the Himalaya. Covering an area of over one million hectares of continuous and undisturbed habitats, ranging from tropical evergreen rain forest to snowcapped mountains, the area is critically important for the survival of many animal communities and species. The Institute of Zoology is supporting the nomination process by providing unique datasets and revising the scientific contributions to support the NWCD in this important process.
