My wife and I visited this Center after two days of touring temples to see what is being done in animal conservation in the Siem Reap area. This conservation center is located close to the entrance of Kbal Spean about an hour drive by car from Siem Reap . We took the 1pm tour which lasts about a hour and a half. The local people that work here are passionate about animal conservation and in educating the next generation to appreciate and conserve Cambodia's animals.
The tour was educational and informative. We saw many species that are local to Cambodia including eagles, kites, gibbons, silvered langurs, turtles, peacocks, giant storks, and leopard cats. Their goal is to rehabilitate and return these animals to the protected forests around the Center, if possible. The Center is doing good work trying their best to stem the tide of deforestation, animal abuse, and superstitious beliefs about eating animal parts.
I highly recommend taking this tour to see what some Cambodians are doing to protect their wildlife. Be sure to get to the front gate well before 1pm. The day we visited, they opened the gates 5 minutes before 1pm and closed and locked the gates promptly at 1pm. A couple came several minutes after the tour had begun and were turned away. They are located just to the left of the entrance to the Kbal Spean path with a well marked sign. A donation of 3.5 dollars is requested.
