Agriculture expansion, land grabbing and the high demand for construction timber are endangering the future of our forests. In Cambodia, Wildlife Alliance rangers are constantly patrolling one of the last unfragmented rainforest in South-East Asia.
Every year we confiscate in average 600 chainsaws. One chainsaw can clear-cut around 1000 square feet of evergreen forest in just one day. Sre Ambel station, one of the 7 stations Wildlife Alliance built over the last decade has the biggest evidence warehouse. Here, we guard over 1300 chainsaws confiscated over the time from the illegal logging in our protected area.
