Homemade guns are popular among the poachers in Cambodia, used in illegal hunting and sometimes against our Rangers.
This morning, during a patrol inside the Cardamom Forest, our Rangers from Green Peafowl station (Sre Ambel) confiscated a homemade gun. The woman handed it over to the rangers and received only a three-strikes contract.

It takes a piece of wood, an aluminium tube and iron pellets to create a deadly weapon.

Our forest rangers work tirelessly to protect some of the world’s most endangered animals in one of Southeast Asia’s last great rainforests.
