Managing Mangroves in Cambodia

Cambodia’s Song Saa Private Island is doing its part by assisting the country’s first marine reserve and supporting coral conservation efforts. Although guests cannot actively farm the coral themselves, they can snorkel or scuba-dive through the resort’s sprawling man-made coral reefs with a marine guide, assisting in underwater clean-ups and auditing the surrounding coral and marine life. Back above water, guests can partake in other Journey of Change programmes, such as kayaking through the mangrove forest of the adjacent island Koh Rong (where they can audit red, black and white mangroves, as well as shrimp, needle fish and Oriental pied hornbills) and visit the neighbouring island of Prek Svay to help local conservation teams implement clean water initiatives.
