As a result of wild resources conservation, the Myanmar natural forests provide ample opportunities for ecotourism. In order to promote forest based ecotourism operational plans have been laid down and on-site activities are being undertaken for upgrading and improving the Meinmahla Kyun Wildlife Sanctuary in the Ayeyarwady Delta, the Hlawga Wildlife Park near Yangon, the Yangon Zoological Garden, the Moyingyi Wetlands Wildlife Sanctuary near Bago, the Popa Mountain Park and the Shwe-set-taw Wildlife Sanctuary in Central Myanmar, the Pyin-Oo-Lwin Botanical Garden and the Alaungdaw Katthapa National Park in Upper Myanmar, and the Inle Wetlands Wildlife Sanctuary on the Eastern Shan plateau.
The Inn-daw-gyi Wetlands Sanctuary in Northern Myanmar, the Seinyay Forest Resort on the strategic road across Bago Yoma teak forest and the Natma Taung National Park on the Chin Hills have been identified as potential sites for ecotourism and are now being developed.
In addition, Lampi and the surrounding islands in the far south were surveyed in 1983 and the proposal for the establishment of Lampi Marine National Park had been made in November, 1994. This park represents the biologically important environment of Myanmar's national heritage. A biological assessment of the area was again made by a professional team in 1995.
The apparent biodiversity of the marine and corral reefs, and the forest and wildlife resources within the proposed parks, are of significant conservation values on regional and global scale.
