Our forest rangers work tirelessly to protect some of the world’s most endangered animals in one of Southeast Asia’s last great rainforests. The rangers serve as the first line of defense for endangered animals including Asian elephant, pileated gibbon, Sunda pangolin, Asiatic black bear, Siamese crocodile, giant ibis, and dhole. The biggest threats facing these species is habitat loss and poaching for the illegal wildlife trade. Wildlife Alliance rangers are out in the forest day and night, selflessly risking their own lives to protect the lives of these animals and their habitat. Without the Wildlife Alliance rangers, the Southern Cardamoms would not be one of Southeast Asia’s largest tract of contiguous rainforest.

The Wildlife Alliance rangers go on daily patrols and often spend days at a time camping deep in the forest to catch hunters and loggers. Our rangers spend over 3.5 weeks a month away from their families, fully dedicating themselves to stopping deforestation, dismantling wildlife snares, and often catching poachers and loggers in the act.

Wildlife Alliance rangers, across 7 stations, protect 2,124,629 acres (859,807 ha) of intact rainforest. You can help support the rangers on the front line of conservation by sponsoring a ranger station.

Gibbon Station

 
SPONSOR NOW

Major threats: Poaching (90%) and  Logging (10%)

Sponsor a ranger station Gibbon Station Koh Pao

Prior to the opening of the Gibbon Station (Koh Pao station), the westernmost area of the Southern Cardamom National Park was rife with illegal logging and poaching. With an urgent need to increase protection in the area, rangers started camping in the area in 2006 and the station officially opened in 2007. Strategically located at the intersection of two major rivers, the Koh Pao rangers are ideally situated to stop the movement of luxury timber on the waterways. Near the Thai border, the area is a hotspot for both international and domestic wildlife trafficking. The coastal patrol area is also a vital habitat for migratory birds. As such, one of the major issues these rangers face is the massive quantities of bird nets set on the beaches. Each year, the Koh Pao rangers effectively dismantle thousands of bird nets and snares.

Sponsor a ranger station Sunbear Station Veal Pi

The Sun Bear Station (Veal Pi station) was relocated from its original location in Tatai in 2009. This was one of the two original stations that opened in 2002. When rangers first moved in and started protecting the area, they put huge pressure on the loggers. They have been extremely successful in this right, and now there is not much logging in the area. Today, the biggest threats facing the area are hunting and snaring.

Sponsor a ranger station Elephant ranger station Trapeang Rung

The Asian Elephant Station (Trapeang Rung station) was the third station Wildlife Alliance opened (in 2003) and was strategically placed between the first two, Pangolin Station and Sun Bear Station. After applying intense pressure on loggers in the first few years after the station opened, logging has been drastically mitigated in the patrol quadrant. The rangers still collect a lot of snares because there are hunting villages nearby. The Trapeang Rung rangers also travel far distances, past the reaches of other ranger stations, to protect remote areas that are not patrolled every day.

Major threats: Poaching (80%) and  Logging (20%)

Sponsor a ranger station Chhay Areng Siamese crocodile

The Siamese Crocodile Station (Chhay Areng station) is the newest addition to Wildlife Alliance’s fleet. Prior to the station’s opening in January 2017, the area was only patrolled about once a month by the nearby ranger stations. With the opening of a new Community-Based Ecotourism (CBET) project in Stung Areang, it was imperative to deploy rangers in the area full-time to ensure the area is devoid of poaching and logging. The station is located on a route that is frequently used by wildlife traffickers to transport wildlife from the forest to the main road. Because the station is relatively new, there is still a substantial amount of hunting and logging in the area.

Pangolin Station

 
SPONSOR NOW

Major threats: Poaching (75%) and  Logging (25%)

Sponsor a ranger station Stung Proat Pangolin

One of Wildlife Alliance’s original stations (est. 2002), the Pangolin Station (Stung Proat station) opened to combat rampant wildlife poaching. Located near the village of Chi Phat, an ex-hunting community turned Community-Based Ecotourism program, the area was littered with snares and bombarded with hunters. Although poaching has lessened due to 15+ years of ranger presence and the alternative livelihoods provided to the village of Chi Phat, the landscape is ideal habitat for many of Cambodia’s iconic wildlife species and as a result is still targeted by outside hunters. The station is also located near our Wildlife Release Station to keep poachers far away from the newly released rescued animals, including Critically Endangered Sunda pangolins. The patrol quadrant is also located in the heart of an Asian elephant corridor, making it imperative that the forest is kept safe.

Green Peafowl Station

 
SPONSOR NOW

Major threats: Poaching (35%) and  Logging (65%)

Sponsor a ranger station Sre Ambel Green Peafowl

The Green Peafowl Station (Sre Ambel station) is strategically located on a river near National Road 48 to intercept illegal timber being transported via boat from the Cardamom Mountains to the main road. Because the station is located directly on the river, loggers have begun transporting timber from the forest to the road through the surrounding communities. The station is located in a valley with many communities, so the rangers are not only intercepting transported timber but are also bombarded with local illegal land grabbing and logging.

Sponsor a ranger station Chambak Claudet leopard

The Clouded Leopard Station (Chambak station) was opened in 2010 in an effort to combat illegal land grabbing and logging. Bordered to the east by many economic land concessions – an agreement that allows the beneficiary to clear land to develop industrial agriculture – the forest was under threat from land encroachment. The strong presence of our rangers has mitigated the threat of encroachment but the area is still rampant with illegal logging for luxury timber. The Chambak rangers have confiscated huge quantities of illegally harvested timber and have dismantled thousands of illegal charcoal kilns.
