The biggest problem for Supayang Reserve is mining and illegal hunters and poachers, so continued protection of the area is really important. Increasing the size of Supayang Reserve will improve the health of the ecosystem which will help maintain the beautiful habitat of the area, especially for species in the region like clouded leopards and the critically endangered Sumatran tiger. More room for more animals can’t be a bad thing, hey?
Wildlife Asia is a great group that raises money in Australia to help increase conservation awareness and make real differences in saving animals in the wild, in Asian countries like Cambodia and Vietnam. It aims to protect and add to the natural habitat of Asian wildlife including orang-utans, gibbons, Asian rhinos and bears. Taronga will work with Wildlife Asia to raise some money so hopefully they can expand the land for these wonderful creatures.
