Yesterday, Wildlife Alliance rangers from Osom and Roveang stations, in coordination with the Ministry of Environment, ambushed a truck carrying an inordinate amount of illegal timber. The truck that was carrying a enormous 19m3 of illegal timber, or 670 cubic feet, was seized at night on a road near the station. The ambush was carried out based on prior information given to the rangers. The timber was mostly likely being transported to a major urban center to be sold into the illegal timber market.

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