Fauna & Flora International’s Cambodian Crocodile Conservation Project team have just returned from the field where they conducted surveys for crocodile nests.
A nest was found, which is not a yearly occurrence, holding 21 eggs, 20 of which were fertilized. The team took measurements and moved the majority of the eggs to a new location where they could be guarded around the clock by our crocodile wardens until they hatch.
Upon hatching, the baby crocodiles will be kept in captivity where they can be fed and raised by the CCCP team for at least a year before they are released back into the wild, to give them a better chance of survival (baby crocodiles are food for many predators including adult Siamese crocodiles).
