Cambodia’s Cardamom Hills sees return of wild elephants and otters

Cambodia shares some good news with the world – wild elephants have returned to one of the forest conservation sites in the country.

At the Cardamom Tented Camp, forest rangers discovered and photographed elephant footprints and droppings within the area’s 18,000ha forest concession which the camp protects, with help from Wildlife Alliance and the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF).

“From the size of the dung and the number of footprints, it seems that this is a herd of nine elephants comprising four adult females, their calves and one juvenile,” said John Roberts of GTAEF in a statement. GTAEF has been fully funding the ranger efforts since Covid-19 shut down tourism across the globe.
