A total of 17 nests of Lesser adjutant were recorded in Lumphat Wildlife Sanctuary (LWS) by the end of 2022 breeding season, according to a news release of NatureLife Cambodia this morning.
Sixteen (16) nests of Lesser adjutant were successfully fledged with 27 chicks, the source said, adding that one nest was confirmed as a failure due to an unknown reason.
The good news was resulted from the efforts of NatureLife Cambodia in collaboration with LWS rangers and local communities in finding and protecting the critically endangered species’ nests.
Lesser adjutant builds their nests in a colony and the biggest colony this year consisted of 6 nests, the news release pointed out.
This result shows that Lomphat is one of the important sites to ensure the survival of this vulnerable species, it underlined.
