Kouprey Express Attends Green Night

On May 24th, the Kouprey Express (KE) and Community-Based Ecotourism (CBET) teams participated in a bi-monthly Green Night at Metahouse, the German cultural center, in Phnom Penh. Participation in this event came about after the staff of local NGO, Save Cambodia’s Wildlife (SCW), expressed interest in conducting a Green Night on Climate Change jointly with Wildlife Alliance.

While Mr. Prom Hoeng, the chief of Chi Phat’s CBET Committee, presented on the impacts of climate change upstairs, KE set up shop downstairs and gave out more than 50 posters and hotline stickers, while providing information to visitors about KE’s education efforts, forest protection, and wildlife trafficking. All of the visitors expressed interest in not only wildlife and forest protection but also in KE’s posters and stickers.  Having fun giveaways provides the team with the opportunity to spread the word about the hotline and environmental protection beyond just the event attendees. 

Kouprey Express is looking forward to further participation in Green Nights and collaboration with SCW.  It is important for to the KE team – as well as to the CBET team – to bring the message of environmental education and forest and wildlife protection to new venues and new audiences.  The KE team can only visit so many classrooms in a year, but events like this help to ensure the messages stay out there even when the team is not giving classroom lessons.
