According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the results from the 2021 population census of White-shouldered Ibis in Cambodia showed Sambo Wildlife Sanctuary of the Mekong Flooded Forest is the Kingdom’s second most important site for conserving this critically endangered bird, after Siem Pang Wildlife Sanctuary.

The nationwide survey documented 252 birds along with a record of 16 roosting sites in Sambo, while updating that Cambodia’s total population was estimated at 754 individuals, it underlined.

Other important sites where the White-shouldered Ibis was recorded include Kulen Promtep, Lomphat, and Phnom Prich of the Eastern Plains landscape, it pointed out.
