Summary

The Cardamom Rainforest Landscape in Cambodia is a global biodiversity hotspot and haven for endangered wildlife such as Elephants, bears, and pangolins. Wildlife here faces increasing threats from habitat loss and poaching. Wildlife Alliance rangers protect >1.3 million hectares of forest and its wildlife from land-grabbers, speculators and hunters through daily patrols. Our rangers stop land clearing, logging and poaching, send offenders to court, remove wildlife snares and rescue live animals

Challenge

The Cardamom Rainforest Landscape is home to 55 Critically Endangered, Endangered and Vulnerable species of wildlife (IUCN Red-List) that are severely threatened by deforestation and poaching. Land-grabbers, speculators and illegal loggers use heavy machinery and fire to clear vast tracts of the forest, destroying wildlife habitat. Poachers set huge numbers of snares to entrap wildlife and supply the illegal trade. The biodiversity of this forest needs intensive protection.

Solution

Our highly trained and experienced rangers patrol 365 days/year across >1.3 million hectares from 10 stations strategically placed across the landscape's mangroves, rainforests and rivers. They prevent and stop land encroachment and illegal logging, seize heavy machinery used for deforestation, extinguish land clearance fires, remove wildlife snares, rescue live animals, submit court cases and take offenders to court. This protects endangered tropical 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 un-fragmented tropical forest in mainland SE Asia, preserving the Cardamoms is globally important in the fight against climate change. It is both the largest carbon sink in the region and the largest rainfall regulator, supporting 22 major waterways. Locally, it provides a biodiverse safe haven for endangered wildlife populations to recover and flourish.
