11 wild elephants were rescued by conservation organizations after they were stuck in a deep mud hole for four days in Keo Siema Wildlife Sanctuary of Mondulkiri province. In a joint effort yesterday, Wildlife Alliance, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and Elephant Livelihood Initiative Environment (E.L.I.E.) helped the last elephant from the sticky pit, created by American bombing during the Vietnam War. Wildlife Alliance congratulates the rangers and staff from ELIE and WCS for their hard work.
Wildlife Alliance held a funeral for the dead elephant that was electrocuted by an electric fence in Sihanoukville province. Several monks chanted for his after life as locals say goodbye to the two tons giant. RIP
A gentle giant was electrocuted last night after he hit the electric fence that was set up by Kirirom hydropower, 3 kilometers from Kirirom National Park, near an area where our rangers patrol. Locals called our rangers for help.
Elephants may be one of the largest and strongest creatures in the animal kingdom but they are no match for an electric fence as one mammal was found dead on Tuesday night. The local villagers are mourning the gentle giant. RIP
Wildlife Alliance is transporting the elephant to our Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center today. A funeral will be held tomorrow morning with monks chanting at the Center.

At Wildlife Alliance we also perform scientific research in the Cardamom Rainforest Landscape. Watch the video of a sambar captured in the camera traps.

Wildlife Alliance team would like to thank Sereyneath Mao, a sophomore at ISPP - International School of Phnom Penh for raising awareness about deforestation among high school students and raising money for Wildlife Alliance. Wildlife Alliance would like to thank Sereyneath, her parents and teachers for this making this book possible.

Did you know that 15 years ago, Wildlife Alliance worked
Sovanna Baitong communities to provide them with alternative livelihood? Back in the days, they were living in abject poverty surviving on meager crops through forest slash and burn and wildlife poaching, most them riddled with debts and unable to pay for their children’s health care. Today, this is not the case. Thanks to Suwanna Gauntlett founder of Wildlife Alliance.
