Abstract

The Arakan forest turtle (Heosemys depressa) is a critically endangered, poorly known chelonian endemic to western Myanmar. We conducted surveys of the Rakhine Yoma Elephant Range in 2003 and 2009, and herein report field observations of H. depressa. This protected area offers excellent prospects for the future conservation of this endangered species owing to its large area, inaccessibility, and minimal human activity.
