MNC activists Hun Vannak & Doem Kundy were jailed on 14 Sept, 2017, charged with incitement - for filming from a small boat in the open sea !!. They face up to three years behind bars in an extremely overcrowded & unsanitary conditions - clearly as a revenge by the mafia-like elite that rules Cambodia against our hard hitting campaigns.
Mother Nature Cambodia is a grassroots movement fighting to put an end to the systematic destruction of Cambodia's natural environment by vested interests.
Since our creation in 2012, we have achieved remarkable achievements, forcing the government and the energy giant Sinohydro to cancel a destructive hydro dam, and pressuring the governments of Cambodia and Singapore to discontinue the illicit extraction and huge trade of sand between both countries.
While the destruction of Cambodia's once-mighty nature proceeds, Mother Nature Cambodia continues to grow and expand onto new campaigns, ready to contribute to the effective protection of our country's vital natural resources.
For close to ten years, Cambodian government agencies coordinated the extraction and smuggling of millions of tons of coastal sand to several Asian countries, chiefly Singapore, under the excuse that these estuaries needed to be 'deepened for navigational purposes'. After two and a half years of grassroots advocacy - including the unjust jailing for close to one year of three of our activists - and a hard hitting expose on wide-scale corruption issues tied to the sector by our investigators, the vast majority of sand exports have stopped.

The mighty Mekong River, one of Asia's most important waterways and the lifeline to hundreds of thousands of Cambodian families, is under serious threat.
Uncontrolled extraction of millions of tons of sand and gravel, several mega dams blocking fish migration and sediments vital for agriculture, over fishing and contamination, the list is sadly endless.
Mother Nature Cambodia is empowering communities affected by some of the most destructive 'development' projects, namely the indigenous communities affected y the destructive Lower Se San 2 hydroelectric dam.
