Cardamom Mountains

Dhole Cuon alpinus, or Asian wild dog, are the largest carnivore remaining in the Cardamom Rainforest Landscape and have a larger home-range in tropical Asia than tigers. As such they are restricted to Asia’s most remote and least disturbed forests and listed as globally Endangered by the IUCN. The Cardamom Rainforest supports an important population of these groups living wild dogs. By focusing on Direct Protection of Forests and Wildlife our rangers are protecting dhole, and their prey species, by patrolling the forests of the Cardamoms and implementing effective law enforcement.
