Eco-tourism Operation Support

CAMBODIA / WWT

At WWT we want to see a world where healthy wetland nature thrives and enriches lives. WWT believes this should be true for both the U.K. and overseas and that is why we are working to offer and promote solutions to conserve the world’s most threatened wetland hotspots and improve the livelihoods of their people. This is why WWT has been working in Cambodia (South-East Asia) since 2011, a country where 30% of the surface is wetland and 80% of the population depend on harvesting natural resources for their livelihoods.

WWT Cambodia has three areas of focus, the first is the reserve management support of two key protected wetlands in Cambodia; Boeung Prek Lapouv & Anlung Pring Protected Landscape. Second is wetland education and awareness raising on a local and national scale, and thirdly is providing integrated conservation interventions, which work with the local communities to help them benefit from the wetlands while conserving them.

Anlung Pring Community Led Ecotourism site is one of these integrated conservation interventions. 55 local community members living around Anlung Pring Protected Landscape have formed a tourism group which deliver tourism at the reserve (www.mekongcrane.com), improving their own livelihoods while also raising funds for the conservation of Anlung Pring.

WWT Cambodia is looking to facilitate an opportunity for a volunteer to support the Anlung Pring Sarus Crane Conservation and Development Community in the operation and coordination of the tourism site, including includes 9 homestays, 1 wildlife tour and 6 cultural tour products as the site enters its tourism season.
