Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary (CWS)

About our NGO partner

The Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary (CWS) was created to protect and conserve the unique animals and remarkable habitat of Cambodia.

One million acres of this rich forest landscape and diverse wildlife population are now protected by the Cambodian Wildlife Sanctuary NGO for future generations to see and enjoy. In partnership with the government of Cambodia, the project agreement is already in place to protect them in perpetuity.

CWS is home to several endangered species, including tigers, elephants, banteng, Eld’s deer, sarus crane, crocodile, and several turtle species. Once densely forested and rich in biodiversity, this area has been significantly impacted by illegal logging and poaching. The project is focused on protecting and restoring 25,000 acres of jungle, located an hour north of the famous Angkor Wat temple complex.
