Saving the Siamese Crocodile from Extinction

crocodile siam protection Laos
Until a few decades ago, the Siamese crocodile was a common sight in Southeast Asia. Today, fewer than 1,000 remain in the wild, and they are at risk of extinction. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is conducting an innovative conservation project to protect the species, which is funded in part by AFD and the European Union. Listed as Critically Endangered, the fate of the relatively small species of crocodile - measuring up to just three and a half meters long - lies in the balance, and the objective of this project is to rescue it.
