Two new protected areas were added in the Eastern Plains Dry Forest landscape of Cambodia which resulted in a 2.5-million-acre area of connected and contiguous wild tiger habitat. This connected landscape restores precious tiger  and creates a viable area to develop an income-generating ecotourism industry in the region. Tigers have already made a comeback in this newly protected habitat and are now being monitored carefully.
