About Gibbon Station
Major threats: ■ Poaching (90%) and ■ Logging (10%)
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.
