A Leopard Cat along with six turtles, was rescued by Wildlife Alliance rangers and released back into the wild! After rescuing the animals, protected under Cambodian law, the rangers from the Green Peafowl released them back into the protected Cardamom Rainforest. Leopard cat populations are believed to be declining at an alarming rate across all their range countries, but most drastically in Southeast Asia.
Our work to protect the Cardamom Rainforest Landscape is vital to giving the Cambodian leopard cat the connected habitat they need to survive. They are also targeted by hunters for their meat. Because these felines are so rare in Cambodia and throughout southeast Asia, little is known about their populations. Wildlife Alliance is helping to conserve the Cambodian leopard cat by protecting their habitats, protecting them from hunters, and educating local people about the importance of protecting these unique cats.
Our forest rangers work tirelessly to protect some of the world’s most endangered animals in one of Southeast Asia’s last great rainforests.
