Later that night, the Kouprey Express held a Community Night Show for around 100 Lavar High School students. The Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) also made an appearance at the night show to assist in educating the students about the wildlife trade, habitat protection, and to help the audience think about ways in which they can protect their communities’ natural resources. Having the WRRT present at the Community Night Shows gives the audience a unique and informative perspective about the wildlife trade that affects their communities.
In the month of May, the Kouprey Express educated 418 students about wildlife and habitat protection, reached 400 community members over five Community Night Shows, and took 95 students and teachers to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center to meet animals rescued from the wildlife trade.
Thank you for your support of the Kouprey Express! Together, we are creating lasting change in Cambodia by educating and inspiring the next generation and improving attitudes about forest and wildlife conservation.
