Our Dawson colleague Scott Cameron just posted an interesting commentary about environmental protection efforts in Cambodia. An excerpt:
“Cambodia is blessed with highly diverse tropical ecosystems, which are home for many threatened and endangered species. It is also a developing economy, without the strong institutional and legal infrastructure to support conservation that we take for granted in the US. As a result, Cambodia’s fauna and flora are seriously threatened by poachers.”
