Meet the Leng Family! The parents were already living at Phnom Tamao when Wildlife Alliance joined in 2001. They were likely rescued from fish farms, where they are seen as competition for livelihoods and often killed. Now with a safe home at the Rescue Center, they had their first litter in 2014 and have been wonderful parents, teaching their four young how to swim and hunt live fish!
With four resident smooth-coated otter families at Phnom Tamao, we hope to introduce unrelated young and release these captive born otter families back to the wild!
