Patrols capture spectacular images in protected area

Tuol Neang Sav Plov Loung Community Protected Area (CPA) patrol team had recorded inspiring pictures of various bird species in the protected area in July. Their ability to capture those pictures came from photography techniques training provided to them.

NatureLife Cambodia Organization said in their August 3 Facebook post that the patrol team set out on their mission in July, and the results were ‘awe-inspiring’.

“They managed to capture stunning images and videos of various bird species, some of which are endangered, including the Greater Adjutant and the Black-headed Ibis,” NatureLife said.

Tuol Neang Sav Plov Loung Community Protected Area (CPA), approved in 2020, is located in Stung Sen Ramsar site of the Tonle Sap Lake. Since 2020, the community protected area has been receiving financial and material support from NatureLife Cambodia for its biodiversity patrols and monitoring. The patrol team was equipped with a set of cameras to aid in capturing diverse wildlife, with a particular focus on waterfowl.

The NGO said the support was a part of the Our Tonle Sap project funded by the European Union. This assistance has not only strengthened the community's efforts but has also led to remarkable achievements in the conservation and protection of local biodiversity.

NaturLife said Tuol Neang Sav Plov Loung CPA had s contributed a lot to safeguarding the precious avian species thriving in their region.

“The beautiful pictures and videos are a testament to their success, highlighting the invaluable role of community-driven conservation efforts,” it said.
