Tmatboey - Cambodia

Description:
Cambodia’s deciduous forests are some of the most important conservation areas in southeast Asia, home to many mammals and water birds. Deforestation, hunting and the advance of settlers into forest areas have endangered the survival of threatened species in the region. In 2002, a series of pilot PES schemes, supported by the Government and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), were set up in protected areas. Under the community-based ecotourism scheme, bird watching tourists are charged for their experience. Alongside this programme, WCS pays US$5 for reports of nests of threatened species and employs local people to monitor and protect chicks.
