Cambodia is the global stronghold for this species
It has been described as the most threatened large waterbird in South-East Asia.
In Cambodia, the species strongholds lie in Siem Pang district, Stung Treng province and along the Mekong River mainstream between Kratie and Stung Treng. Recent estimates led by WCS and WWF show these populations to be of global significance for the survival of this species with estimates of more than 100 individuals for each area. Small numbers of white-shouldered ibis have also been observed regularly at watering holes in the Dry Forests of Mondulkiri’s Eastern Plains Landscape where they probably breed.
