A truck carrying 3,307 m3 of precious timber (Thnong) was confiscated by Wildlife Alliance rangers. The driver abandoned his truck and disappeared inside the forest. The rangers confiscated the truck and precious timber as state property. Ministry of Environment officers opened a court case in order to find the owner of the truck.
International voracious demand for luxury furniture is driving a multi million-dollar illegal trade in precious timber in Cambodia.
Our forest rangers work tirelessly to protect some of the world’s most endangered animals in one of Southeast Asia’s last great rainforests.
