Much of the wildlife that once inhabited these plains of Chao Phraya Delta has disappeared, including a large number of fish in the river systems, birds such as vultures, the Oriental darter (Anhinga melanogaster), white-eyed river martin (Pseudochelidon sirintarae), the sarus crane (Grus antigone) and animals such as the tigers, Asian elephants, Javan rhinoceroses, and the much-hunted Schomburgk’s deer.
