Vietnam / Edwards Pheasant
The Vietnam pheasant inhabits what is left of the exceedingly damp mountain forests of Vietnam. It’s historical range is now almost completely denuded of primary forest through a combination of herbicide spraying during the Vietnam war, logging and clearance for agriculture. The last forested areas known to support the species are subject to continuing degradation by wood-cutters
Threats to species:
Critically endangered dur to hunting and trapping for consumption, logging activities and war.
