Chatthin Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in Kanbalu and Kawlin Townships of Sagaing Region in upper Myanmar. Boundary of the site is marked with posts and board signals on the ground. Elevation of the site ranges from 165 to 260 m.
Indaing forest is the main forest type covering about 90% of the site. Checklists of 263 tree species, 240 birds, 160 insects, 47 fishes, 38 reptiles, 15 amphibians and 13 mammals are available at the Zoology Department of the University of Yangon. Eld’s deer (Cervus eldi thamin), is one of the three subspecies of Eld’s deer and is native to Myanmar.
The enhanced vegetation index (EVI) is an 'optimized' vegetation index designed to enhance the vegetation signal with improved sensitivity in high biomass regions and improved vegetation monitoring through a de-coupling of the canopy background signal and a reduction in atmosphere influences. Landsat Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) is similar to Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and can be used to quantify vegetation greenness. However, EVI corrects for some atmospheric conditions and canopy background noise and is more sensitive in areas with dense vegetation.

This publication presents the information collected on Myanmar protected areas (PAs), with the objective of mobilising national and international support for cost-effective initiatives, innovative approaches and targeted research implemented by non-State actors in collaboration with authorities and communities in sites needing priority conservation actions.
