Summary

Cambodia's Cardamom Rainforest Landscape is a global biodiversity hotspot and haven for endangered species such as Asian elephant, sun bear, and Sunda pangolin, but its wildlife faces increasing threats from habitat loss and poaching. Daily patrols by rangers from our 16 stations protect >1.3 million hectares of habitat from illegal loggers, land-grabbers, and hunters. Our rangers rescue live animals, remove deadly snares, combat land clearing, logging and poaching, and send offenders to court.

Challenge

The Cardamoms are home to 55 wildlife species that are IUCN Red-Listed as Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable, and are severely threatened by deforestation and poaching. Land-grabbers and illegal loggers use heavy machinery and fire to clear vast tracts of forest, destroying wildlife habitat. Poachers set huge numbers of snares to entrap animals and supply the illegal wildlife trade. Intensive protection and daily ranger patrols are need to protect this forest's biodiversity.

Solution

Our highly trained professional rangers patrol night and day 365 days/year from 16 stations strategically placed across the landscape's mangroves, rainforests and rivers to protect the Cardamoms and its wildlife. They stop illegal logging and land encroachment, seize equipment used for deforestation, extinguish land clearance fires, remove wildlife snares, rescue live animals from poachers, and submit court cases against offenders. This effectively protects wildlife and secures their habitat.

Long-Term Impact

Protecting the Cardamom Rainforest Landscape through daily ranger patrols offers both global and local long-term benefits. As the largest unfragmented tropical forest in mainland Southeast Asia, preserving the Cardamoms is globally important in the fight against climate change. It is both the region's largest carbon sink and its greatest rainfall regulator, supporting 22 major waterways. Locally, it provides a biodiverse safe haven where threatened wildlife populations can recover and flourish.
