Great time of the year for Birdwatching in Boeng Pearaing Biodiversity Conservaton. (March to Mid of May)
Boeng Peariang Bird Sanctuary is located at Sangkat Chreav, it’s about 13 km from Krong Siem Reap. It is home to about 175 rare species of countryside, mountain and waterbirds including Milky Storks, Spot-billed Pelicans, Purple & Grey Herons, Greater Adjutants, Black-headed Ibis and many others. The bird sanctuary used to be a hunting place where birds were killed for food or smuggled to be sold on the world’s growing black market. Due to the initiative of the local community to preserve the avian habitat, the sanctuary has been developed with the goal to serve as a bird reserve. The people residing in the Chreav Village are educated on the importance of wildlife and they now act as guides and bird rangers that protect the sanctuary from poaching. The bird reserve is about 208 hectares in size consisting of freshwater swamp forests where mangrove trees grow around.
Boeng Peariang Bird Sanctuary is a year-round avian habitat where visitors are able to get a sight and experience a rich variety of wild waterbird species in their natural surroundings. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the different species of birds, nestling, breeding, ecosystems and how the Chreav community works closely to reserve the bird sanctuary.
