Rescue Oriental Bay Owl at Changkran Roy

On 17, July 2018, we went to Chongkran Roy Community located in Varin District, Siem Reap Province, north-west Cambodia. CBGA team accommpanied with our partner ACCB were there to rescue an Oriental Bay Owl, one of rare nocturnal creature which is the key bird that bird watcher wants to see. This visit is upon to the call yesterday evening from the Community chief to us said that they found the bay owl on the tree just one meter height from the ground and it didn’t fly even people walked close to it.

The bird is now under supervision of the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB), located at Kbal Spean to give treatment. We hope that this Oriental Bay Owl will get recovered soon and then we will release it back home in Changkran Roy forest.
