The Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB) is the first nature conservation centre in Cambodia. The ACCB contributes to the conservation of wildlife and biodiversity in Cambodia through wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, release, breeding, environmental education and conservation research. Join us for a guided tour of the rescue centre at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. This is the only way to visit the ACCB as we are normally closed to the public.

a friend and I went last week and i was very impressed with the facility. We received a very warm welcome from Ratanak, our guide for the day. She was very informative and helpful and interesting. They are doing great work to care for the birds and wildlife.

Visited this beautiful place this week. It is a bit far from siem reap, but definitely worth visiting! We got a tour by "Monkey", who was super nice and has an excellent command of the English language. She was eager to answer all our questions and knew a lot about the animals. It was very impressive to hear the kind... More

There are other animal conservation centres around Cambodia but this one was the best. The guides were knowledgable and spoke high level English. The centre is set up with many enclosures that housed a variety of both native and endangered wildlife. I was happy to pay the $3 donation. For me Cambodia is not about the orphanages and I was...

Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity is definitely worth a visit while in the Angkor area even though it's quite a trip from Siem Reap. We got a guided tour through the conservation centre just for me and my girlfriend and our German guide was such a knowledgeable and kind man that the tour felt more like a friendly conversation...

ACCB is worth visiting, a very nice project to rescue wild animals for poachers. Be on time, it is worth it!

It will cost around $30 for a return Tuk-tuk ride to the conservation but since it's 50km outside of the city this is fairly reasonable. Be waiting at the gates at either 9am or 1pm as they open the gates just before the stated times and promptly lock that gates after entry. Mike, our guide, was knowledgeable and informative answering... More

Siem Reap is not all about Angkor Wat and the Temples, as amazing as they are. I was espe ially keen to see some other sides to Cambodia. Between this and the landmine museum (nearby) I really feel like I have experienced Cambodia. The animals are mostly rescues from the pet trade and traditional medicine trade. Unfortunately, mostly because of... More

This conservation group is not only taking in injured and sick animals, they do everything to try and release them back to the wild. For those animals that are unable to be released they try and sustainably breed them. The indigenous animal population has been severely impacted by pollution, industrialisation and illegal poaching. What special creatures they have, they had... More

Combine with Banteay Srei - seeing the conservation efforts and how they are trying to educate the kids so poaching and making 'pets' out of endangered animals don't happen is a great thing. It's so responsible and they care about training and releasing the animals if recovered or allowing them to stay if they can't survive. Conservation breeding of critically... More

This centre focusses on rehabilitating native species rescued from the wildlife trade or those illegally kept as pets and tries wherever possible to reintroduce them to the wild. It also educates local children on animal welfare issues with the hope of changing the future for Cambodia's remaining wildlife. The 90 minute tour is informative and well worth the 3 dollar...
