What you can do for this Ecoregion

Options to sustain conservation efforts

Action and committment are urgently needed to establish and implement an effective conservation plan for the dry forests.

We know the dry forests are globally significant. Our partners understand and share our vision. We are working together on a comprehensive action plan that will scope out the next 20 years. We know what we have to do, but we need more support.

WWF is channelling funds towards the programme in an attempt to conserve this region as best as possible, but we cannot do it alone. We are calling for your help. Your generosity. Your determination. Your co-operation.

Visit the Dry Forests

There are many flights arriving in Phnom Penh such as from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok. On arrival you should contact a local travel agent and tell them you wish to go visit the Lower Mekong Dry Forests.

However, remember that It's currently next to impossible to get to the dry forests in the rainy season (end August to early November).

Remember to travel smart.


Your support could help WWF in the Lower Mekong Dry Forests Ecoregion.

Every cent we receive is put to good use. Here are a few examples of how your money could be spent:

  • $300 would equip one ranger in Phnom Prich Wildlife Sanctuary with essential field equipment.
  • $350 would enable us to conduct one camera trapping survey for rare and endangered wildlife.
  • $550 would enable us to work with one local community and map their natural resource use in order to integrate conservation and local livelihoods.
  • $2,500 would support a teacher-training program in environmental education for Mondulkiri province, Cambodia - in the heart of the Dry Forests.
  • $3,000 would support one monthly ranger patrol for a Wildlife Sanctuary in the Dry Forests for one year.
  • $4,000 would enable us to produce an educational film about elephant conservation for local audiences.
  • $8,500 would enable us to conduct a Mekong River Irrawaddy Dolphin research and community monitoring project.
  • $10,000 would help us run a rights and responsibilities workshop for local people on newly-drafted natural resource management laws and regulations, such as protected areas, forestry and fisheries laws and regulations.
  • $26,000 would support Wildlife Sanctuary ranger training and patrols for one year. Training includes community engagement and enforcement techniques, and biological survey and monitoring techniques.
  • $250,000 would contribute towards the initial establishment of a world-class Protected Area for conservation and wildlife tourism, in the model of southern African wildlife reserves.
