National Parks of Cambodia

History : On 1 November 1993, King Norodom Sihanouk issued a Royal Decree concerning the Creation and Designation of Protected Areas, resurrecting Cambodia's commitment to developing a national system of protected areas following decades of civil conflict. The Parks were selected as a "natural and scenic area of significance for its scientific, educational and recreational values".

The Ministry of Environment is responsible for management and protection of all national parks in Cambodia. But the parks are threatened by various illegal activities, including charcoal production, hunting fishing and logging. These issues are being addressed through a combination of law enforcement, education and community development programs. Donations to future Park management will be gratefully accepted and can be made at Park headquarters.
