Wildlife Alliance

Wildlife Alliance is the leader in direct protection to forests and wildlife in the Southeast Asian tropical belt. Our mission is to combat deforestation, extinction, climate change, and poverty by partnering with local communities and governments.
Implement Sustainable Waste Management in Chi Phat
This project aims to implement a Zero Waste Strategy at Wildlife Alliance's Community-Based Ecotourism project in Chi Phat, Cambodia. Located in the stunning Cardamom Mountains, the project will focus on diverting waste from Chi Phat's landfills and promoting recycling and the reusing of materials. The project will implement a system for trash pickup and recycling, conduct workshops in schools to empower young leaders to take action, and provide training and awareness to community members.
Help Care for Rescued Animals in Cambodia
At Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center, Wildlife Alliance ensures that animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade receive proper care for recovery and hopefully release. The illegal wildlife trade is having devastating effects on wildlife in the region, and populations of many threatened species, including tigers, Asian elephants and pangolins are declining sharply due to their high commercial value in the illegal wildlife trade. project reportread updates from the field
Help Stop Illegal Wildlife Trafficking
The wildlife trade is a billion dollar industry that threatens the survival of many of the world's endangered species. The Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) was established in 2001 in partnership with the Cambodian government to crack down on the illegal wildlife trade that was rampant throughout Cambodia. To date, the WRRT has rescued over 56,000 animals and confiscated large quantities of animal parts and other contraband. project reportread updates from the field
Empower Cambodian Communities to Protect Forests
Our Community Agriculture Development Program helps mitigate hunger and poverty in rural Cambodia by providing sustainable livelihood opportunities to former poachers and slash and burn farmers. And our Community-Based Ecotourism project partners with the community of Chi Phat to develop ecotourism jobs for local people in order to provide long-term incentives to protect the surrounding forests. project reportread updates from the field
Help Bring Wildlife Back to Angkor Forest
This groundbreaking project aims to re-wild the forest surrounding Cambodia's historic Angkor Temple Complex. This forest once flourished with diverse wildlife, until over-hunting in the late 20th century decimated these populations. However, since becoming a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992, this barren jungle is now well protected and suited for wildlife reintroduction. In 2013, Wildlife Alliance was given permission by the Cambodian government to reintroduce species that once lived here. project reportread updates from the field
Raise Awareness to Protect Wildlife in Cambodia
The Kouprey Express is an environmental education team that travels Cambodia and raises awareness about wildlife conservation and habitat preservation using PSAs, billboards, and a mobile education component that targets communities and students. By engaging every level of society, Wildlife Alliance hopes to not only reduce the demand for the illegal wildlife trade, but also empower communities to protect their natural resources. project reportread updates from the field

Plant a Rainforest in Southeast Asia
By collecting and planting a variety of indigenous trees, Wildlife Alliance's Tropical Reforestation Project works to reconnect fragmented rainforest in order to strengthen and increase continuous forest cover in the Southern Cardamom Mountain Range of Cambodia. Maintaining continuous forest in this region is critical to protect large mammal ranges and migration routes, safeguard the biological integrity of the forest's many different ecosystems, and preserve the watershed. project reportread updates from the field
Help Save the Most Trafficked Mammal in the World
The Sunda pangolin is a scaly mammal that eats ants and termites, hides in dense forest, and rolls into a tiny ball when scared. However, this secretive and solitary animal is also the most illegally traded mammal in the world. Hunted for their meat and scales, more than one million individuals are believed to have been trafficked in the past decade. To tackle this escalating crisis, our rangers are working day and night, removing nets and rescuing animals before it is too late. project reportread updates from the field
Empower Cambodian Women for the Environment
Starting a green business is a great way for women to provide for their families and protect their local environment, but many women lack access to training, resources, and funding that would help them get started. In 2013, the women of Sovanna Baitong banded together to take charge of their own lives and make their own contribution to the protection of their environment. They created a Women's Committee to empower each other and advocate for gender equality. project reportread updates from the field
