Wildlife Alliance Rangers were tipped off about a person who was housing unauthorized timber. Our teams discovered 34 pieces of “Moreahprau phnom” Dysoxylum loureiri (Pierre). Ten tonnes of “Moreahprau phnom” were seized during the raid. That timber was inventoried and is now being kept in Wildlife Alliance Patrol Station as state property. The house owner is under MoE Officers investigation.
