The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), since its establishment in 1895, has operated the world's most extensive field conservation program, focusing on nature's strongholds and protecting half of the globe's biodiversity. In Cambodia, WCS has been active since 1999, dedicated to conserving the nation's unique wildlife and landscapes. Our efforts span vital regions such as the Eastern Plains, Northern Plains, and Tonle Sap, targeting species like the Asian Elephant, Bengal Florican, and Siamese Crocodile.
The Cambodia program takes a comprehensive approach to conservation, combining scientific research, community-based initiatives, and partnerships with local governments and organizations. From protecting carbon-rich tropical forests to mitigating the impact of zoonotic diseases and illegal wildlife trade, the WCS Cambodia program promotes conservation efforts across various issues and ecosystems.
