Help Save Victimized Wildlife



Specialists at the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center ensure rescued animals from the illegal wildlife trade receive proper care for recovery and hopefully release. Exploitation of plants and animals in Cambodia is devastating the region's biodiversity. Populations of many Cambodian wildlife species, including tigers, Asian elephants and pangolins are declining sharply due to their high commercial value in the illegal wildlife trade.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Chhouk was just a baby when he lost part of a leg to a poacher's snare. He was so scared and agitated that our staff stayed with him in the forest for weeks before transporting him to PTWRC. He recovered, but the snare had done irreversible damage. Dedicated staff found a local nonprofit willing to create prosthesis for the growing elephant. The process has been wildly successful. Today, Chhouk is happy, healthy, and thriving and is recognized as an ambassador for threatened Asian elephants.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our animals thrive on a natural diet, world class veterinary care, and the knowledge and support of expert staff who have designed a rehabilitation program so that some of the animals may one day be released back into the wild.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will improve the overall well-being of Cambodia's wildlife through rescue, rehabilitation, and release into the wild and increase awareness within Cambodia of the fragility of the country's natural environment through outreach education.
