Restoring Wetland at Thimphu Ecological Park

The significance of wetland and species conservation encompasses wider benefits for education, research, and the health of the urban community, as well as sustainability aimed at keeping the park well-maintained and usable throughout. The wetland harbors diverse species of flora and fauna, with 130 plant species, 61% represented by herbaceous plants, and 21% by shrubs. It is also the home to the endangered bird species Gallinago Nemoricola, commonly known as the wood snipe.
