Sacred Or Sacrificial: Cambodia’s Cardamom Forest Under Attack

Buddhist monks pit prayer against Cambodia’s desperate power needs and China’s profit motive.
An eco-warrior monk movement – activist students, farmers and villagers united behind monks who try to protect areas of forest, blessing trees to deter would-be loggers – has begun in Cambodia’s Central Cardamom Protected Forest. (Photo: Luke Duggleby)

Cambodian Buddhist monks and local people bless remaining trees – those too big for the loggers’ machinery – by wrapping orange cloth around them and praying. A proposed dam in the area would flood nine Khmer Daeum villages and their ancestral farmlands and ‘spirit forests’ and forcibly displace more than 900 villagers. (Photo: Luke Duggleby)
A poorly implemented Government project to give people land titles has led to massive deforestation as people claim areas of forest as their own, chopping down trees in favour of plantations. The monk movement aims to slow the forest destruction. (Photo: Luke Duggleby)

The British conservation group Fauna and Flora International says the proposed dam would destroy critical habitat for these and 30 other endangered animal species. (Photo: Luke Duggleby)
