Bhutan stands out from other Himalayan nations due to its largely intact forest cover. Its pristine and diverse forests are among the finest remaining ecological examples in the region, and are a source of great beauty.
The majority of Bhutan’s breeding birds, 84%, find their homes in these forests and bushes. A significant portion of the country’s threatened birds, 57%, as well as 90% of its restricted-range birds, depend on these habitats. Different types of forest areas are homes to various endemic species, as explained in further detail.
