Conservation in Cambodia
In Cambodia, the illegal trade of animals inflicts irreparable damage to populations of Asian elephants, tigers, and leopards. In Bokor National Park, poachers earn significantly more than compared to what they could earn working outside the park. Often the Cambodian authorities can be bribed to ignore these crimes.
Using snares to capture the animals, the meat is then sold on the black market where almost all of the illegal wildlife ends up in China.
