Koh Kong: Rangers from Wildlife Alliance patrol unit from Koh Pao dismantled and collected 1 km of bird netting and 1,400 pieces of animal snares in the forest. What makes these stringing plastic bird netting or “wall of death” especially dangerous is their ability to trap all kinds of wildlife including bears, boars, pangolins, civets and birds.
It turns out that our rangers had dismantled these nets and snares at the same location last year. “This is the same job we did last year at the same place, where the rangers dismantled and collected 6 km of bird net and approx. 5000 snares,” recalls head ranger Ionescu Dragos.
The success of dismantling these assaulted weapons by forest rangers means that they are saving and protecting wildlife.
