Snares – either metal or rope – are indiscriminately killing wildlife across Southeast Asia, from elephants to mouse deer. The problem has become so bad that scientists are referring to protected areas in the region as “empty forests.”

Cruel Wildlife traps

Wildlife Alliance rangers are collecting thousands of animal traps every year. They need to reach deep in the forest, sometimes the patrol can last one week.

While on patrol, Siamese Crocodile Station collected 52 animal traps from the forest floor.

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