Cambodia's First World Wildlife Day

On Sunday, March 4th, Fauna in Focus hosted the country's first World Wildlife Day at Jaya House River Park, in Siem Reap. This international event celebrates wildlife and nature, and promotes pride in the natural heritage of countries around the world. Fauna in Focus spent several weeks leading up to the event working with volunteer students from The School for Field Studies and Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia. Teams of local and American students trained together with our Wildlife Instructors to run activity stations from our Wildlife Club program on our behalf. With a team of nearly 30 volunteers teacher and the Fauna in Focus team, we setup 10 activity stations at Jaya House River Park, in Siem Reap.

The event saw over 250 visitors, of which nearly 150 were local school students of different ages and backgrounds. We would like to thank everyone who was able to make it to Cambodia’s first World Wildlife Day with Fauna in Focus, it was a great success! Everybody had an exciting time learning about Cambodia’s wildlife and conservation with our interactive activities, games and the screening of our film #ACambodianNatureFilm. We were thrilled to debut our new Cambodian Ecosystems Board Game for our #WildLifeClub at the event.

Everyone, young and old, enjoyed playing! We will also include free screenings of our film 'A Cambodian Nature Film' throughout the day. 

We would like to recognize our partners who helped to make this day such a fun day for all of our guests; The School for Field StudiesPlastic Free CambodiaCambodia Bird Guide Association - CBGAPaññāsāstra University of Cambodia, and a very special thank you to our host Jaya House RiverPark Siem Reap.
