DOCUMENTING THE VOICES OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY: "Endangered” (Mondulkiri, Cambodia)

Since 2013, a wildlife and nature conservation project in Mondulkiri has been rescuing abused and overworked elephants in Cambodia.

The Amazon rainforest has been burning for weeks, and it’s now spreading like wildfire on social media. What’s happening to one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, its people, flora and wildlife, and the lungs of our planet is absolutely devastating - there’s zero doubt about that.
