PLCN Conduct Forest Patrols

June 7, 2013 | Posted in: News, Uncategorized

On May 31, 21 PLCN members (four women) patrolled the Prey Lang forest at the Oukronhoung border between Stung Treng and Preah Vihear to find instances of illegal logging. Patrollers came across logging activity, confiscating eight chainsaws and five cubic meters of wood.

 

The loggers had already fled the scene. (This report came via CPN/CDPS. PLCN affiliates with CPN which also provides them with technical assistance and funding.)
