Initiatives for Tiger Conservation

Illegal human activities pose the greatest threat to the long-term survival of Tigers. Tigers are particularly susceptible to indirect threats, such as the illegal hunting of their prey species, with wire snares laid to trap species such as Banteng, Gaur, Sambar and wild pigs. This results in the depletion of the Tiger's prey base.

Direct poaching of Tigers is not currently a significant threat in Cambodia, given the relatively low density of Tigers across the country, although they could be indiscriminately caught in traps set to catch other species.
