ABOUT THE RANGERS

These rangers and field staff are part of a team that was recently given the award for the “Best Law Enforcement Monitoring Effort in critical tiger landscape” by WWF’s Tigers Alive Initiative.

The team, from the Eastern Plains Landscape in Mondulkiri, northeast Cambodia, is one of the few that were recently rewarded by WWF for excellence in protection efforts against poaching and other illegal activities.
Rangers here regularly walk the forests to monitor poaching and other illegal activities. They also visit markets and restaurants to check that they are not selling wildlife that is protected.

Where the rangers work

The Eastern Plains Landscape in northeast Cambodia covers an area of 16,000 km2. As Southeast Asia’s largest block of dry tropical forest, tiger experts say it has perhaps the highest potential in Asia for re-introduction and to help tiger populations recover.

Here, WWF focuses its efforts on Mondulkiri Protected Forest and Phnom Prich Wildlife Sanctuary (approximately 6,000 km2 in total), a refuge for the Asian elephant, leopard, and banteng (an endangered wild cattle species), among others.

The goal is to keep one of the last great wildernesses of Cambodia intact and connected, helping people protect their wildlife while sustaining livelihoods, at a time when it is under threat from uncontrolled and illegal logging, hunting and illegal wildlife trade—among a growing tide of other threats.
