At the WTM in London, the Sam Veasna Center, Siem Reap’s leading wildlife and ecotourism operator was honored on Tuesday and received the award for “Best Contribution to Wildlife Conservation”. There were 13 finalists across the categories – selected from a list of 75. Sam Veasna was the only one standing for Cambodia. Cambodia is gathering a lot of attention regarding wildlife tourism, benefiting both tourists and the ecosystem.
Visitors to Cambodia can enjoy an amazing wildlife experience and contribute to conservation. Cambodia, in that sense, doesn’t market and advertise its amazing nature, wildlife or community and there is huge scope for its tourism sector for potential travelers.
The Sam Veasna Center works with eight communities in Siem Reap province and collaborates with organisations like the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) to decrease deforestation and stabilize the number of endangered species. The WTM is a prestigious global event attracting tourism businesses from around the world.
