Savannakhet Landscape

Savannakhét (Lao:ສະຫວັນນະເຂດ), situated in the south of Laos, is the country's largest province. Its original name, Savanh Nakhone ("heavenly district" or "land of fertility suitable for agriculture"), hints at its remote, wet evergreen habitat.

WCS works in and around two key protected areas: 

The Laving Lavern-Khoun Xe Nong Ma National Protected Area(LL-KXNM NPA) lies within the Northern Annamite mountain range and directly contributes to the livelihoods of 8,000 people.

The Xe Champhone Wetland is the largest of Lao PDR’s two Ramsar sites and contains core habitat for a globally important population of the critically endangered Siamese Crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis).
