The Royal Academy of Cambodia (RAC) and BM Nature Safari Co. Ltd. on Saturday signed a memorandum of understanding to create a zoo for the preservation of wildlife in Preah Vihear province.
Dr Sok Touch, president of RAC, said the venture will bring new experiences to tourists.
“It will feature a natural site with animals and forest to give tourists a new look at the pre-Angkor period and the culture of the Khiev people in Preah Vihear,” said Mr Touch.
The zoo will feature a zip-line that will give tourists a bird’s-eye view of the park.
Kinoshita Sori, president of BM Nature, said the company will bring modern Japanese technology to promote the conservation and development of the park.
“This will be done with the best technology to achieve the highest standards ever in Cambodia. The company has created this kind of zoo in many countries, especially in Africa.
“There is still time to preserve wildlife, so we have to work together to help the wildlife and the forest thrive,” Mr Sori said.
