Western Siem Pang Forest
Western Siem Pang Wildlife Sanctuary is a unique and globally irreplaceable site.
It supports populations of five bird species listed by IUCN as Critically Endangered, including Cambodia’s national bird the giant ibis. This means without immediate conservation interventions, these species face a high chance of global extinction.
The area forms part of the one of the largest blocks of protected forest across Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Western Siem Pang is situated in North-Eastern Cambodia, in Stung Treng Province.
