First postcards arrived in Cambodia for tiger rangers - one of them yours?



Posted on 10 August 2012  | 
The first postcards for rangers working at the Mondulkiri Protected Forest arrived at WWF Cambodia's office in Phnom Penh yesterday!

In all, there were 5 postcards all dated 1 August and addressed to the rangers - Lean Nhor, Hun Vanne, Si Mean and Vong. Two cards came from David, Stephanie and Sammy in Holland, and three were from Scherzade Westwood of Hong Kong.

The postcards were sent under the WWF Tigers Alive Initiative's Cards4tigers action to feature the work of rangers working in the tiger landscapes WWF is supporting. It enables people from everywhere to tell these rangers they care and thereby help to boost morale and promote the rangers' work. Cards4tigers will run till June next year. Results from the action will be used to urge tiger range governments to invest more in the rangers and therefore in better protection and enforcement of the tiger's habitat. Rangers are critical towards achieving Zero Poaching

Similar to Indonesia, WWF Cambodia has also taken to receiving the postcards for the rangers due to uncertainty in postal services to outlying areas in the country. WWF staff will hand over the cards to the rangers on their next visit to Mondulkiri. We aim to capture this moment on film, so watch this space!
