The Mekong Flooded Forest (MFF) is a vital area between Kratie and Stung Treng on the Mekong River for endangered bird species. WWF works in this area to raise awareness about the endangered Mekong birds and to support local villagers in guarding the nests of the Red-Headed Vulture, White Shouldered Ibis, River Tern, and Lesser Adjutant. These efforts simultaneously preserve the landscape, protect the Mekong birds, and promote local livelihoods.
