What is Fauna & Flora doing to save clouded leopards?
Fauna & Flora is helping to train and equip dedicated community wardens who can carry out regular patrols in Cambodia’s Cardamom Mountains, helping to remove snares and stop illegal activity destroying the rainforest.
But we must do more.
Through your donations, Fauna & Flora could train more wardens and supply them with essential equipment such as boots and raincoats, so they can carry out this essential monitoring work.
The conditions they must deal with each day are extremely challenging – wading through and kayaking down rivers, and trekking through dense jungle, are a daily occurrence for these brave men and women.
What do wardens need?
Wardens need raincoats, boots, sleeping bags and rucksacks to allow them to carry out vital patrols and spend successive days and nights in the field.
In addition, patrol teams need GPS systems to help them navigate the dense rainforests of Cambodia, and to help specialists coordinate their movement.
Providing these wardens with the essential equipment they need could enable them to ramp up their operations, increase the frequency and range of their patrols, remove more snares, deter poachers and loggers, and help to keep clouded leopards safe.
