Jahoo Gibbon Camp

The Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary (KSWS) in Mondoulikri, Cambodia, contains globally important populations of endangered primate species and the forest is the ancestral home of the Bunong ethnic minority, who are amongst the poorest in Cambodia. The Bunong’s livelihoods depend heavily on the natural environment but tragically, the destruction of the forest and the modernization of society have left them with limited livelihood options. Nature-based tourism is a mechanism that can benefit both local people and wildlife by providing sustainable financial benefits to the community that are directly linked to the conservation of wildlife and their habitats–and that is exactly what the Jahoo Gibbon Camp seeks to accomplish.
