Sam Veasna Centre for Wildlife Conservation – Sustaining Cambodia Wildlife and Communities through Ecotourism
SVC manages wildlife viewing trips with exclusive access to Wildlife Conservation Society sites across Cambodia. Registered as a local NGO with the Ministry of Interior in 2006, their goal is to provide an alternative sustainable livelihood from ecotourism for the local communities at the sites that WCS prioritises for conservation. In return for the income and employment received they are asked to sign no hunting and land use agreements, which are monitored by Ministries of Environment and Forestry patrol teams advised by WCS.
As a Non-Profit Organisation, any profit from providing ecotourism services is invested into local community development in return for good environmental stewardship. They believe that it is necessary to provide alternative livelihoods in order to achieve sustainable conservation. By choosing to see Cambodia’s spectacular wildlife with them you are giving local communities those alternatives.
