Local Birdingpal Contacts

Local Birdwatchers

Using the Birdingpal resources you must agree to the following: If you contact a local Birdingpal and make arrangement to go birding, you should note it is common courtesy to make sure you show up for the appointment. If for any reason you are unable to do this, the least you must do is contacting the local Pal right away.
Please note that most Birdingpals are serious birdwatchers. It is a privilege to contact them, and your message should reflect it. A local Pal does not get paid, but should he/she offer to take you out birding, using their own vehicle, it would be courteous to pay for the fuel. A lunch and/or a small gift would also be appropriate, something as simple as a souvenir of your country, or a pin from your local birding club.

Mardy Sean
Tour Leader
My name’s Mardy, I am the original Siem Reap citizen. And I am married with no children. I have been working at Sam Veasna Center for 6 years, and I love my job so much because I can work to conserve the wildlife and nature.

The achievement for me of working at SVC is I know more deeply about wildlife and the site wild’s movement. I think that it’s very important for SVC to do conservation in Cambodia because there are not many organizations which work on the wildlife prevention role, so, we will really need your organization and people to work together in this field work.

In addition, if I could change one thing about my career I would improve efficiently communication that the clients will buy more our trip.

Mony Sang
Tour Leader
My name’s Sang Mony. I live in Siem Reap province. I have been working at Sam Veasna Center for 12 years. It has been a lit long, however, I love working there because I have a chance to learn more about the nature, and I could understand clearly about conservation work. Furthermore, I can work to prevent the endanger wildlife in Cambodia.

If I could change one thing about my work I would try my best in order to build up the capacity of nature conservation resources in order to make them much better that present day.

My best memory of working for SVC is shooting the photos of the wildlife and nature. It looks really beautiful and attractive to me.

CBGA is a legal organization, a not-for-profit organization registered with Ministry of Interior of Cambodia and operates under the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Ministry of Environment. Founded by a group of passionate conservationists who are committed to helping educate people about the wildlife and working to ensure that our planet is protected for future generations.

Our mission is to secure parts of identified green belts around Cambodia to protect the rich biodiversity of these areas as a way of conserving wildlife, while creating research and experience opportunities for people to reconnect with nature and to become inspired to protect it as well as encouraging sustainable ecotourism within protected areas of Cambodia to generate funds to support conservation and local communities in partnership with the Cambodian Government Agencies and local communities.

Currently partnering with Birdlife International-Cambodia Program on developing sustainable ecotourism to support the communities in the eastern plains of Cambodia. In response to the objectives and vision and to sustain our project ecotourism is chosen as a tool to implement and achieve our goals, which we believe that through our initiatives we can change the way of life of people inside the protected areas to love nature and join the conservation projects run by other organization and government in a sustainable way and mitigate the misuse of natural resources tied with agreements within stakeholders.

Currently we are working in a collaboration with 8 different communities across 5 provinces and the sub-government levels.

Our expert guides, just to name a few –Nara Duong, Chea SEAB, Sophal CHEN (as Naran), Johnny ORN, Sophoan Sanh, Huth Lean, Srun etc., have many years’ experience birdwatching, leading trips throughout Cambodia and in Southeast Asia.
