Humanscale Playing Key Role in Cambodia Conservation
Humanscale is strengthening its environmental commitment with a new initiative aimed at protecting a rich and diverse ecosystem.
Through a three-year, $750,000 sponsorship of a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) project in conjunction with the Cambodian government, Humanscale is financing patrols in the Phnom Prich Wildlife Sanctuary and the corridor that links the sanctuary to the adjacent Mondulkiri Protected Forest. The patrols help protect tigers, leopards, Asian elephants, wild water buffalo and other cattle, birds, deer and additional indigenous species from illegal poachers and loggers who are systematically destroying the 1.5 million-acre region in eastern Cambodia.
WWF President and CEO Carter Roberts says without the support of environmentally forward-thinking companies like Humanscale, WWF would not be able to do the important field work at the core of achieving its conservation goals.
“Humanscale’s support of conservation work in the plains of eastern Cambodia is a signature contribution to WWF’s efforts to secure the future of this ecologically important region. Through this project, Humanscale has shown true environmental leadership and has set a new bar for other environmentally friendly companies to meet and exceed,” he says.
