Siamese Crocodile station (Chhay Areng) patrol unit went on night patrol deep in the heart of the Cardamom Mountain. The rangers found an abandoned camp and one critically endangered pangolin hidden in a plastic bag. The hunter’s camp was dismantled, the motorbike confiscated as state property and the pangolin released the next night inside the protected area. The constant presence on the ground makes our rangers to be unpredictable. The poachers and loggers feel hunted, they abandon their camps, clothes, chainsaws, guns and run away.
