Conservationist group spots 15 babies of nearly-extinct Siamese crocodiles in SW Cambodia lake

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) on Friday released pictures and a video clip showing critically endangered baby Siamese crocodiles swimming in a natural lake in Sre Ambel district of Southwest Cambodia’s Koh Kong Province.

The images were taken weeks ago by a patrol from WCS’s Crocodile Nest Protection Team working in collaboration with the Fisheries Administration and Koh Kong Provincial Department of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries, said a WCS’s press statement.

“The team estimates 15 hatchlings, each around 30 centimeters long, are swimming in the lake,” the statement said.
