Killing Bokor Mountain

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

the removal of wildlife & their natural habit is in the final stages but still some stubborn species are just hanging on, but not for much longer

soon the only life on the planet will be 50 billion humans & their farms

I saw gigantic birds there and you could hear it when they were moving their wings. Passing me maybe 20 metres above me. Amazing sight.

Great Hornbills, to be exact. Yes, they are still pretty common. Though I wonder what their breeding success is like now with many of the large trees they need for breeding gone.

I had visited a few year's back and seen the hornbills. An amazing sight.

What happened to Bokor Mountain is also happening at other places in Cambodia

Kompong Speu, Rattanakiri are only two examples.

Thailand, Indonesia and China have by far the worst air pollution problems, most a result of fires,deliberately set.
In Europe Greece, Southern France and Portugal are the ones suffering from annual fires. Often they are related to thugs trying to grab land for building purposes.
