Beng Per Wildlife Sanctuary, Cambodia
DJI Mavic Pro 2
Two recently felled trees lie in the Beng Per Wildlife Sanctuary, in northern Cambodia. The sanctuary exists in name only as most of its forests have been cleared for agriculture. ~~~ The South East Asian country has one of the fastest rates of deforestation in the world and it is estimated only 3% of primary forest is left throughout the country. ~~~ The main drivers behind deforestation in Cambodia are conversion of forest lands for agricultural use and targeted logging of valuable species, such as Rosewood, for the Asian furniture markets. Rubber plantations are the most ubiquitous and are spread throughout the country.
