Population of rare river birds in Cambodia doubles in 5 years

The population of River Terns in Cambodia has doubled in the past five years, raising hope for the species’ conservation, said a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) press statement on Thursday (Feb 11).

River Tern is one of the rarest bird species in Southeast Asia, the statement said.

It said WWF’s research team came into close encounter with a total of 68 River Terns during their initial bird surveys, conducted in early February 2021 along the Mekong landscape between Kratie, Stung Treng provinces and the Laos border.
