  • Hon’ble Sanam Lyonpo’s Message on World Wildlife Day 2016

    The United Nation’s General Assembly has proclaimed March 3 as the World Wildlife Day and on the occasion of this important day, Bhutan is joining hands across the globe to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild fauna and flora.
