The Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) is an animal police unit that investigates and cracks down on the transnational illegal wildlife trade. Over the last decade, the unit has saved 65,187 live animals, seized 42 tons of body parts for ‘traditional medicine’ and bush meat, and arrested 3,121 traffickers. In 2015, the WRRT received The United Nations Award for “ Best Wildlife Law Enforcement Unit in Asia”.
Wildlife Alliance’s wildlife programs are designed to rehabilitate animals victimized by the wildlife trade and provide them with the support and care necessary to ready them for release back into the wild.
Bringing together communities, local knowledge, experience, and tradition, the KE travels around Cambodia to urban and remote rural locations to instill in the Cambodian youth and communities a sense of pride in their natural heritage and a culture of social responsibility.
Livelihood & Community
Nearly 300 million people worldwide live in the tropical zone and depend heavily on forest, fishing and farming as their primary source of food and income. They cut timber, burn the rainforest to make charcoal for sale to the cities, or to clear land for agriculture.
