The greatest threat facing biodiversity in Southeast Asia is hunting. While many hunting methods are used, the predominant method is homemade snares. Snares are like landmines for animals — every snare is a potential death sentence — and almost every species can fall victim to them, from pangolins to elephants. Made from rope or wire, snares are inexpensive to make and easy to set up meaning they can be laid over the course of kilometers in just a short period, forming walls of death. In addition to deterring poachers from setting snares, Wildlife Alliance rangers have removed approximately 250,000 from the Cardamom Mountains Rainforest, potentially saving the lives of thousands of animals.
