Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus)
IUCN Red List: Vulnerable CITES Appendix II
Its range was formerly widespread across much of Southeast Asia. It was distributed throughout most of the wooded lowlands and lower hills of Cambodia and was described as the commonest game-bird at the time.
However, in the last few decades, the species has undergone a rapid decline and has almost disappeared from much of central Cambodia, with just a few populations now believed to be confined to the Northeastern region.
Because of its attractive appearance, the Green Peafowl faces the threat of hunting or as pets. Its feathers are considered to be valuable art objects and are also popularly used in household crafts and decorations.
