Wildlife Alliance (WA)
Cambodia is home to 14 globally endangered species, including the Asiatic Black Bear, Malaysian Sun Bear, Asian Elephant, Indochinese Tiger and the Pileated Gibbon. There are various national parks and protected forests in Cambodia, however, land encroachment, illegal logging and wildlife poaching gravely threaten all of these protected areas.
Wildlife Alliance’s mission is to work directly with habitats and communities to protect and preserve natural environments. Their focus is on direct action on the ground and direct access to the people actually performing the everyday tasks such as locating restaurants, selling illegal animal products for food and working with the government to rescue these animals and close such restaurants.
