care2 petitionsite actionAlert

More than 100 endangered Asian elephants — the largest population in Cambodia — depend on the elephant corridor in the Cardamom Mountain rainforest.But the elephants could lose this critical habitat if Cambodia approves a permit for a new titanium mine in a meeting this Friday! Tell the Cambodian Minister of Commerce to protect his country’s wildlife »It’s not just elephants: The Cardamoms are home to sun bears, Siamese crocodiles and more than half of Cambodia’s bird population. Moreover, the Cardamom Mountains are one of the last intact rainforests in Southeast Asia. It is a model for conservation and have a burgeoning eco-tourism industry that helps locals make a living without destroying the land.

A few years of mineral extraction isn’t worth the permanent damage to the rainforest and the people and wildlife who live there.

Tell Cambodia’s Minister of Commerce to reject the permit for the titanium mine »
