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. Tour lasts about 2 hours and requires a minimum donation of $3 USD. Please arrive on time for the tours. Late-comers cannot be accommodated.

Fasinating rescue park, preserving local animals. Sadly the povery in Cambodia gives wildlife a hardtime. This place is a haven and needs support. Great place for animal lovers to visit.
