To Protect the Forest is to Protect the Pangolin

Dear Friends,

To protect pangolins in the Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia, rangers need to preserve and protect their entire habitat. Wildlife Alliance’s rangers do just that. Everyday our rangers confiscate illegally logged timber, destroy charcoal kilns and remove life-threatening snares. By protecting the forests, they protect the pangolins and hundreds of other endangered species.

Just recently, on January 25, one of our ranger teams located and dismantled a whopping 662 snare traps illegally placed by poachers in a protected area as well as dismantled 10 unlicensed charcoal kilns. On January 24, our Chambak ranger team confiscated a large load of luxury timber and caught two men illegally chain-sawing trees in the forest.

Thanks to your support we are able to provide these rangers with the equipment they need to protect the forests and the pangolins that inhabit it. But this is an ongoing fight and our rangers need gear and support to continue their life-saving work.

We appreciate your ongoing interest and dedication to our work. We encourage you to keep up-to-date on the latest news from our rangers and staff in the field by following us on Twitter and Facebook and by signing up for our monthly newsletter.

Please feel free to contact us at info@wildlifealliance.org if you have any questions or comments.

Sincerely,

Juliane Diamond
