Veteran MNC activist Meng Heng exposes the potential relationship between commander of the Prime Minister's personal body guard unit Hing Bun Hieng and the theft of indigenous land in the northern province of Preah Vihear.  Less than 48 hours after the video was released, top level officials travelled to the area to assure the family in the video that her land would be returned to her immediately.  ​Watch it on Facebook here;

Co-founder and Director of MNC Alejandro González-Davidson, deported out of Cambodia in early 2015, sends an appeal to Prime Minister Hun Sen and asks to be allowed to return to Cambodia to defend himself against baseless charges related to our campaign against illegal sand dredging. Though the video was viewed close to half a million times, and widely picked up by the media, the Prime Minister remained silent.

Thun Ratha buries himself for a second time in sand and asks yet another question, this time to the Minister of Economy, in relation to irregularities in sand exports to India.  Viewed by more than 900K people, and shared more than 44K times, this video played an instrumental role in the eventual banning of further exports of construction and reclamation sand out of Cambodia.  Watch it on Facebook here;

Our latest, and so far most successful video.  Three of our brave activists repeat the formula of burying themselves neck-deep in sand to highlight that, yet-again, the vast majority of sand exports to a country in the region (this time Taiwan) have gone 'missing' from official Cambodian export data.  After 1.3 million views and over 67,000 shares, the director of the video and one of the activists appearing on it were charged with 'incitement to commit a felony' and '​violation of privacy', while filming in the open sea. The disregard by the Cambodian government of all relevant laws, the country's constitution, and several international conventions is now more apparent than ever.

One of Mother Nature Cambodia's most successful strategies has been to use social media channels, chiefly Facebook, to highlight not just the beauty and fragility of the areas we are striving to protect, but also to expose the correlation between government agencies and private sector partners in illegal practices. Our videos, which combine thorough investigation with short and easy to digest messages, have reached millions of Cambodians.  Some of them have also been repeatedly picked up by the media, and have helped inspire countless others to become engaged in environmental issues.  And perhaps most importantly, these videos have provided a chance for Cambodians from all walks of life to express their own opinions and feelings in matters that  encompass protection of the environment, while at the same time those in charge of the government accountable for their actions. 


​Below is a compilation of our most successful videos so far, in chronologic order.

Part of the movie by Fran Lambrick "I am Chut Wuthy", which we posted in 5 different episodes, this shocking footage of local police trying to arrest the brave activist in the jungles of Prey Long (only to be rescued by local forest activists) was one of 2016's most viewed videos on Cambodia's Facebook.  Chhut Wuthy was murdered, most likely on orders from vested interests, in April of 2012. His death has inspired countless youth to become environmental defenders.

Animist traditions by Cambodia's indigenous communities are under threat, chiefly caused by the failed, border-line criminal policies of the Cambodian government.  In this short video, the Chong of Areng Valley, one of the very few communities who were able to fence off the threat of forced relocation and the end of their culture, traditions and livelihoods, explain the values of one of their most important ceremonies.

This video, showing one of our brave young activists buried deep-neck in a pile of sand ready to be transported to Singapore, not just went viral, it also sparked nationwide revulsion at how 70 million tons of sand exports to Singapore could have 'disappeared' from Cambodia's official export data.  It also helped push for the creation of corruption inquiries, and eventually forced a temporary ban on further sand exports to Singapore.

In one of the rare instances where a Cambodian has dared to publicly confront the dictatorial Prime Minister Hun Sen, Hun Vannak exposes the lies and deceit behind the government's recent call for youth to join the government in the protection of the environment.   Vannak was jailed in September 2017 under completely fabricated charges, while filming a video out on the open sea.
