Year 2019 Cambodia


As a part of this initiative, WWF partnered with The School for Field Studies, an environmental study abroad program, to conduct 61 interviews (28 male, 31 female, 2 unspecified) in villages along the northern edges of the Tonlé Sap, the largest freshwater body in Southeast Asia. Those interviewed rely on the lake’s historically abundant and diverse fisheries as their primary source of income. However, recent hydrological shifts combined with increased fishing pressure threaten fish stocks.
