The Tonle Sap Lake supports one of the world’s most productive freshwater fisheries which more than 10 million people rely on. However, this freshwater system is suffering great loss and damage from human impacts, including unsustainable fishing, deforestation, increasing forest fires, and the impacts of climate change. Conservation International are working to improve local livelihoods and food security for the communities that depend on the lake’s bounty. We are doing this through creating savings groups and community fisheries committees, empowering women, replanting the flooded forest and directly working with government and the community to prevent illegal and overfishing.

Nature Is Speaking
Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.
That’s the message of our provocative, celebrity-studded campaign “Nature Is Speaking.” Our aim is to raise awareness that people need nature in order to survive. Our goal is simple: It’s time to change the conversation about nature to focus on what we all have in common: Our shared humanity.
