Community Night Shows with the Kouprey Express

Community Night Show

At the request of Cambodia’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) Secretary of State, the Kouprey Express (KE) team and the Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) were invited to conduct a Community Night Show in the community of Ma-rom in Kampot province. Approximately 250 people from the villages of Preah Angkar, Ma-rom, Phnum Chmar and Derm Doung attended the event. The Community Night Shows are outreach events that raise awareness about wildlife protection to the general public. Interactive games, videos, puppet shows, and music are used to illustrate important environmental principles. At the end of the show, a Q&A was held to test their understanding of wildlife protection. T-shirts and first aid kits were awarded to participants who could correctly answer these questions. They are well received by the communities hosting them, and many travel miles from neighboring villages to attend. The event also provided an important opportunity to promote the wildlife rescue hotline and to help community members understand that the WRRT is there to help them. Events like this are an important way for the Kouprey Express team and the WRRT to increase outreach, and reach other areas and audiences. Help the Kouprey Express team as they expand their work countrywide, by visiting our donation page and choosing Kouprey Express from the dropdown menu.
