Monthly Updates from 2016

Conservation in Cambodia – Monthly update – May – July 2016

Together with the volunteers and our youth group, Green Protectors, we prepared for World Oceans Day which took place on 8 June. It was the first time that we celebrated at the local primary school. We made three different stations for each activity; arts and crafts, recycling and beach clean-up.

Conservation in Cambodia – Monthly update – March – April 2016

The Marine Pollution presentation exists in the form of a projected Powerpoint display which details topics including; Marine Pollution Overview, The Origins of Plastic in the Ocean, Microplastic and its potential problems for humans, Ghost Nets and their removal, “Refusing, Reducing, Reusing and Recycling,” Trash Management and Community Clean Up Projects. During the presentation volunteers are encouraged to ask questions about the issues raised and talk about possible solutions.

Conservation in Cambodia – Monthly update – January – February 2016

The project continued to conduct many underwater and coastal clean ups throughout January and February. Through DAD activities 169.8 Kg of trash was removed from local Coral Reef sites and on land we gathered 115 Kg of trash and 50.1 Kg of recyclable plastic bottles and Aluminum cans.

Monthly Updates from 2015

Conservation in Cambodia - Monthly update - November - December 2015

During the months of November and December both our Coastal Clean Ups (CCU's) and our Dives Against Debris (DAD's) recovered significantly more waste than the previous few months. Indeed, the two months saw the greatest amount of trash and recyclable material removed from local beaches for any recorded period to date.

Conservation in Cambodia - Monthly update - September - October 2015

The last two months have been both quiet and very productive. During September, we have developed a new programme for the Green Protectors about marine organisms and ecosystems. This improved version of our previous programme is more visual with better structured subjects for easy learning, which starts with basic concepts and gradually turns into more complicated knowledge.

Conservation in Cambodia - Monthly update - July - August 2015

The past two months have been quite different from the previous ones. We couldn’t conduct many underwater surveys due to the stormy weather, but it has been a very productive period for our community initiatives.

Conservation in Cambodia - Monthly update - May - June 2015

During May and June, we found the biggest discarded net so far drifting along the ocean. We also released a hawksbill sea turtle back to the ocean after it was found entangled and drifting on a ghost net left by a fisherman.

Conservation in Cambodia - Monthly update - March - April 2015

During the past two months, we have continued with our reef surveys and added more variables to our studies of coral reefs, such as turbidity and sedimentation rate. A programme to assess the coral health (CoralWatch) was added, which is conducted mainly by short-term volunteers.
