Angkor Centre For Conservation Of Biodiversity
Cambodia is making strides in caring for the environment and coming to Siem Reap, you will see how clean the city is. The Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB) is a continuation of this commitment and is located near the famous temples of Angkor.
It is the first nature conservation center in Cambodia, where you will have a guided walking tour to discover more about our wildlife including Greater Adjutants, Gibbons, Silvered Langur, Malayan Pangolin and other endangered species.
The ACCB aims to contribute to the conservation of wildlife in Cambodia, aspiring to become a focal point for wildlife conservation and environmental activities throughout the northwest of Cambodia.
Our objectives are:
• To promote the rescue of selected native Cambodian wildlife and to provide adequate rehabilitation and release facilities while ensuring the maintenance of internationally recognized standards.
• To provide facilities and technical expertise for the conservation breeding of selected threatened species, and to initiate and carry out appropriate reintroduction and restocking programs.
• To serve as an education and training center for communities, wildlife officials and visitors to the center in order to increase awareness of and build capacity for conservation and environmental protection and management, and to promote the sustainable use of natural resources while linking international to local environmental issues.
• To initiate and participate in wildlife conservation and research activities in Cambodia, including in situ conservation activities, species recovery efforts, biodiversity inventories and natural resource-use assessment, and to provide information to support management recommendations for protected areas.
Wildlife Adventure Tour…and More!
We arrange everything for you – and pick up is at 7.30am, then we will drive beyond Angkor complex to see the wildlife at Angkor Conservation Center Biodiversity.
Located at the foot of Kbal Spean Hill, here you will have a guided tour around the center to discover endangered wildlife such as greater adjutants, gibbons, Malayan Pangolin, seeing how we protect and care for our wildlife.
You will gain an insight into the progress that Cambodia is making in this area, and how we are trying to re-establish native species back into the wild.
After visiting the conservation center, the group will hike to visit a series of stone relief carvings found in the river bed and banks.
Commonly known as the “Valley of a 1000 Lingas” and nearby is a small waterfall, where you will have an opportunity to bathe in these sacred waters. They are believed to bring health and good luck, while the waterfall is seasonal – plentiful during the wet months.
In the afternoon, we continue to explore the intricately carved, beautiful pink sandstone temple of Banteay Srei – considered to be a Jewel of Khmer Art, which features elaborate decorations and fine details. These factors have made the temple extremely popular with tourists and have led to its being widely praised as a “precious gem”.
On the way back, we will stop for a short while at a palm sugar village and visit other local handicraft and souvenirs before returning to your hotel.
