Sad story of heat

An elderly, 40-45 years old femaly elephant collapsed and died at Angkor Wat on 22 April 2016 during to train tourist, after 40 minutes walking. She had been working at the Angkor Elephant Company since 2001 and may be got heart attack cause of 40°C and low water to be drank.

Yem Senok facebook user has posted three photos about the sad story which were shared more than 8000 times and provoked outcry on social media. There are still 13 elephants working at the company, but people garnered signatures that elephant riding to end in this area.

Tourism has to offer special trips to invite and win foreing visitors. Accidents have been happen at any destination but to ride elephant - this is a truly exotic program of Asia. Anyway there is trouble with not the event but the method of care these animals.

I have just one more question: How many websites have signed the source of that picture? (copyright of Yem Senok)

Destroyed rainforests

Cambodia still has large areas of forest, with a total of over 10 million hectares, or nearly 57% of the land area (Forest cover data in 2010). However, over the last two decades, Cambodia has lost some 2.86 million ha of forest (1965-2010), a rate of deforestation that is high compared with other countries.

The principal causes of deforestation relate mainly to institutional and governance issues and the fast rate of national development. Evidence suggests that large-scale agro-industrial enterprises are currently the largest driver of deforestation.

Through REDD+, we can reduce deforestation, strengthen conservation, and promote sustainable, management of forests for the benefit of people, especially the rural poor, wildlife, and the climate.

Recognizing the potential of REDD+, Cambodia is one of the first countries in the Greater Mekong region to address REDD+ with pilot activities starting in 2008. After Cambodia joined the UN-REDD Programme in October 2009, UNDP and FAO supported the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) in developing the Cambodia REDD+ Readiness Roadmap.
