Bhutan Environmental Protection

by Jonah Goodman

Bhutan has some of the strictest environmental conservation laws in the world. According to the 2008 constitution at least 60% of the country’s land must be covered by forest in perpetuity, and it is strictly illegal to kill or trap any wild animals. Biological corridors connect huge national parks, allowing animals to migrate without human contact. As a result, Bhutan is an unspoilt haven for biodiversity stretching across three climatic zones providing a home to tigers, red pandas, snow leopards, 770 species of bird and over 5,000 types of plant.
