During a month-long expedition, biologists and conservation groups partnered with the Cambodian government to conduct a biological inventory of an important stretch of the Mekong River. The data will help guide conservation efforts and inform policy makers to create a massive wildlife reserve. Currently, the area is under imminent threat of illegal logging, poaching, and poor land management practices. Many species have been lost and others hang in the balance.
This expedition was supported by WWF in collaboration with BINCO (http://www.binco.eu/).
