Wildlife cameras deployed in Cambodia to help restore tiger population

Cambodia has initiated efforts to restore the tiger population in the Cardamom Mountains by installing 410 camera traps in a designated 90-hectare protection area within the Tatai Wildlife Sanctuary. Tigers were declared “functionally extinct” in Cambodia in 2016. The cameras, placed at one-kilometer intervals, will monitor wildlife, focusing on prey species like deer and wild boars. The three-month study aims to assess the availability of suitable diets for tigers, which are planned to be imported from India. A memorandum of understanding with India involves the exchange of four tigers initially, with potential plans for importing 12 more over the next five years. The project includes measures like metal fences, cages, and ponds for tiger breeding in the reintroduction zone.
