FREELAND has been monitoring wildlife in Thailand’s forests for more than a decade in cooperation with the Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, and with the support of Smithsonian and other sponsors.
Newly published photos spanning several years of camera trap surveys highlight the diversity of wild animal species found in Khao Yai National Park, including many rarely seen in daylight.
Information about wildlife populations, such as trends and migrations, is vital to protecting forest reserves effectively.
FREELAND’s best-practice PROTECT monitoring and enforcement training for park rangers helps them identify and respond to poaching threats by planning patrols to protect key wildlife populations.
This work continues today with support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 21st Century Tiger, the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Care for the Wild, Rufford Small Grants, Panthera, and other sponsors.
