Ensuring a Future for the Critically Endangered Siamese Crocodile
The main project objectives/outcomes are to launch an IUCN- and government-endorsed reintroduction and reinforcement programme for Siamese crocodile in Cambodia. This will entail the release of captive-bred individuals to supplement wild populations.
Secondly it is hoped to strengthen community management of 3 existing crocodile sanctuaries and establish an additional 5 community sanctuaries at the national level by 2014.
Habitat loss & degradation
Finally the project will monitor and evaluate released crocodiles to inform the species recovery programme, through telemetry studies of released individuals, evaluating trends in the status of 4 crocodile populations and understand the impacts of the project on local communities.
This project is implemented by Fauna and Flora International.
