Protect the People
To solve the problems of deforestation and poaching in the heart of the Southern Cardamoms Mountains of Cambodia, Wildlife Alliance is helping formerly landless, slash-and-burn subsistence farmers develop permanent agriculture so they no longer need to destroy the forest and hunt wildlife for survival
Your gift will prove Wildlife Alliance with the tools necessary to help suport these local communities. The aim of Wildlife Alliance's Community Agriculture Development Project (CADP) is to reverse the thirty year cycle of poverty and natural resource destruction that started when the Khmer Rouge confiscated farmers' plowing equipment. By giving plows and seeds back to these farmers, CADP's goal is to help them return to permanent rice cultivation and abandon slash-and-burn practices.
