Thanks to the students at ISPP (International School of Phnom Penh) for helping us rescue a green peafowl being kept as a pet in Phnom Penh! After a grade 2 class learned about Endangered animals in Cambodia their teacher spotted a large bird being kept in a small cage. The studentswere able to identify the bird as an Endangered Green Peafowl and emailed Wildlife Alliance for help. Thanks to the class’s tip, our Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team was able to confiscate the bird being kept illegally as a pet and transported it to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center where it will receive appropriate care.
We want to thank the students and budding conservationists of ISPP for their help in protecting Cambodia’s wildlife!
