Elliot’s Pheasant

(Syrmaticus ellioti)

Native to China, the Elliot’s prefer the evergreen and deciduous broadleaf and coniferous forests. Clearance of natural forest has been illegal since 1998 and although hunting is also a factor at a local level, it seems that population declines are now slower than in the past. 

Threats to species:

The main threats currently faced by the Elliot’s include the burning of forest by man-made hill fires, collection of firewood, and illegal hunting.
