This report covers the findings from two relatively brief surveys, focused predominantly on the bird community, of what is often termed the Xe Champhone (indicated in the map as Xe Champhon) wetlands of Savannakhet Province. The first of these surveys was undertaken by the author between 29 August and 8 September 2012, the second between 12 and17 June. The primary goal of these surveys was to assess the relative status of bird species of conservation concern in Xe Champhone and determine those species of highest priority for conservation intervention and their conservation need

Xe Champhone Wetland, baseline report http://mwi.mrcmekong.org/index.php/watershed-blogs/item/29-xe-champhone-wetland-baseline-report http://mwi.mrcmekong.org/index.php/watershed-blogs/item/29-xe-champhone-wetland-baseline-report
The Xe Champhone Wetlands is one of Lao PDR’s first two sites to be recognised under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Significance. Xe Champhone Wetlands cover an area of 12,400 hectares (ha), with core areas amounting to 1,500 ha. The wetlands are a large plain containing perennial and seasonal rivers as well as scattered lakes, ponds, fresh water marshes, and rice paddy fields. These become interconnected during the wet season, and the wetlands complex extends into other wetlands areas, including Nong Luang, Kout Koung and Kout Koke. The northern part of Xe Champhone includes rice paddy fields and two large reservoirs, while the southern part contains extensive vegetation, including open woodland, mixed semi-evergreen forest, as well as shrubs and grasses.
