How was the CTAP Plan made? The first critical step was recognition of the functional extinction of tigers in the country. In taking this bold step, Cambodia became the first country to recognise the 21st century national extirpation of tigers and to develop clear actions for their recovery.
The TX2 commitment was reaffirmed by Prime Minister Samdach Akka Moha Senabdeiy Techo Hun Sen in August 2017 at the Second National Forum on Protection and Conservation of Natural Resources. The Prime Minister then instructed the Ministry of Environment (MoE) to work with other relevant government agencies and conservation partners to begin detailed planning. That’s where Wildlife Alliance comes in.
We work with the government and local communities to protect one of the last unfragmented rainforests in Southeast Asia: the Cardamom Rainforest landscape. To do this, we create strategic protection plans, conduct zoning and demarcation, provide critical environmental education and support communities to develop conservation-friendly activities like community-based ecotourism.
