Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Mr. Hance. Kudos to Birdlife International for their efforts the past 10 years to make this happen and to Prime Minister Hun Sen for signing the decree. Read and noted.

"We are delighted by this result and it is a crucial step to protect these species," said Bou Vorsak, BirdLife’s Cambodia Programme Manager. "To secure the globally important populations of these Critically Endangered birds, we now must work together to start sustainable management initiatives in the adjacent area."

GOOD NEWS! Thanks.
