Challenge

On January 9, 2020, our wildlife police unit rescued 466 lesser whistling ducks with clipped wings, 56 long tailed macaques, 3 common palm civets, and 2 water snakes from a wildlife trafficker in Kompong Thom Province, Cambodia. While a few animals were suitable for immediate release back into the wild, the vast majority will need to be cared for at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Canter until they recover or grow old enough to be released back into their natural habitat.

Solution

Caring for and rehabilitating these 500+ animals will cost an additional $1,000 per month until they recover and are able to be released. Most of the ducks have clipped wings that will take time to regrow and the majority of the monkeys are not old enough to care for themselves in the wild. Your support will provide food, housing, enrichment, and medical treatment for these animal on their journey to a life in the wild.

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. The Center houses over 1,200 animals from 102 species including endangered Asian elephants, tigers, gibbons, Siamese crocodiles, sun bears, among many others. All the animals living at PTWRC have been rescued from the illegal wildlife trade or are victims of habitat loss, and sadly wouldn't be alive without our intervention.
