An important part of keeping an eye on and safeguarding Cambodia's endangered Prey Lang forest is the Prey Lang Community Network (PLCN). It is now crucial for community people to use smartphones as tools to record evidence of crimes including illicit logging, log transportation, and forest encroachment to protect the forest. With smartphones, members of the PLCN may record incidents of environmental degradation in real-time and take pictures and videos to prove that certain practices are illegal. With the help of these gadgets, they can quickly collect and provide vital information to the appropriate authorities. Without smartphones, residents would not be able to give the police hard evidence of these violations, which would make it much harder to enforce environmental regulations and preserve Prey Lang's integrity. Through the effective use of technology, PLCN enables local communities to take an active role in the protection of their natural resources and promote environmental justice.
