Suwanna Gauntlett direct action conservationist:
"We believe law enforcement is the deterrent that is needed because this is a true genocide and all these species are just… It’s a hemorrhage out of the national parks. And right now the situation is so bad that this is the only thing you can really do. Of course you can do awareness [campaigns], it’s not going to change people’s behavior. For example, the moment we don’t patrol Road no. 4, which is the road going in to Phnom Penh, wildlife is stacked and sold again. It’s like drugs. It’s not something you can eradicate just by “nice, nice” campaigns. We are more interested in working on the supply end because of the rapid decimation of species. No amount of workshops and platforms for discussion and policies and institutional strengthening in going to make a difference. It’s law enforcement in the field that works."
