WELCOME TO FAUNA IN FOCUS
Hi there friends and fellow nature fans. My name is Dan. Today I am inviting you to join Fauna in Focus and help us produce a range of fun wildlife science and conservation video shorts and animations. This project will help build a new generation of conservation leaders and inspire a love of nature across Cambodia!

I've been working in wildlife conservation for over 10 years. I came to Cambodia in 2013, and launched Fauna in Focus in early 2015 with the production of the countries first ever high-quality nature film. In this film we explore Cambodia's amazing biodiversity and promote conservation to a local audiences.

Nature in Cambodia is under threat, yet today there is a tragic lack of meaningful environmental education, or awareness of nature. Across the country, people are unaware of how their actions effect the environment we all share. This is what you can help us change by becoming a patron today!
We make cool nature videos. A bit like this:


What do we want to do?
We want to make new, bigger, and better nature film shorts and animations that are fun, inspirational and engaging, and help promote conservation and natural sciences. Media offers us a highly efficient way of reaching audiences across Cambodia, far beyond our classrooms. To do this we need to hire full-time filmmakers, editors, and animators who will produce a range of videos on topics such as: 
  1. Wildlife Reporting and Rescue
  2. Native Species Featurettes
  3. Climate Change & Tree Planting
  4. The Water Cycle & Natural Processes
  5. Snake Bite Prevention & Treatment
  6. Plastic & Waste Reduction
and so much more!

What do Patreon's get?
As a patron, you will make all of this possible. This earns you lots of good Karma for your contribution to wildlife conservation in Cambodia, and we also have some special perks for those who are truly committed to making an impact. This includes:
  • Early access to our films
  • Behind the scenes clips
  • Downloadable content & galleries
  • Special seminars
  • Film credits
  • and some top secret rewards as well
Thanks so much for your support!
Tree hugs from Dan & the Fauna in Focus Team! As we say in Cambodia, oh-koon chiran (thanks so much)! Subscribe to our YouTube channel here! Sign up for news & updates here: http://eepurl.com/dvbkP1

More Info?
Fauna in Focus International is a 501(c)3 US non-profit charity. We support Fauna in Focus Cambodia, a local NGO based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, not far from the famous temples of Angkor Wat. Our mission is to to improve knowledge of and attitudes towards wildlife and promote conservation in Cambodia. We do this through  Nature Discovery, Environmental Education & Wildlife Media. Visit our website here to explore the Fauna in Focus project!

A Cambodian Nature Film:
Our first project was "A Cambodian Nature Film" - the first high-quality film on wildlife and conservation in Cambodia. This already had over 1.5 million views across our social media channels and screening events. It was made with just 2 staff and some dedicated volunteers over a 2 year period. In this film we explore the diversity of plant and animal life in Cambodia, while promoting wildlife conservation efforts across the country. The entire film is narrated in the local Khmer language (with English subtitles), and is hosted by local naturalist Chea Samban. Have a look at one of our trailers, watch the full film below, or learn more about this film here.

Biodiversity in Cambodia:
Cambodia is a small country, yet it is home to a rich diversity of plant and animal life. From wild elephants to clouded leopards, the small tropical kingdom is home to some of the most iconic wildlife in the world. Sadly, many of these precious creatures are under threat, and the natural habitats where they live are vanishing. Agricultural expansion, illegal logging, damn construction, poaching and trafficking in illegal wildlife products and pets are devastating the wild populations here.
Environmental Education & Awareness in Cambodia:
Fauna in Focus puts our efforts entirely into high-quality education and media campaigns that build the public and political will needed for conservation to succeed. Public awareness of the threats facing wildlife and the importance of conservation is desperately needed if we are to change the way people interact with nature in Cambodia, and that’s where we come in! Learn more about our environmental education programs here.
