#Our Ulule fundraiser


Back in image on the1st crowdfunding from LPDE!

For 2 months, LPDE organized a fundraiser in partnership with the Airavata Foundation in Cambodia. 

Indeed, we had a new recruit to take care of in our reserve... a new elephant was born in Cambodia!

There had been no births of baby elephants in a reserve for more than 30 years in the country! 


It is a female who came into the world on the night of December 25, 2021.


She was named Achariyeak Noëlle in Khmer, which means Noelle's Miracle.

As a result, La Patrouille des Elephants and Airavata organized a fundraiser to follow up with Noëlle.


The goal is to raise €10,000. This fundraiser took place on the Ulule website, an online crowdfunding platform. 

After hard work by the communication team, we managed to reach the goal of €10,000 and even exceed it!


We also obtained 870 €, which will be used to treat the eye injury of Ikeo, Noëlle's mother.

Result of this action:192 donors in total !

A big thank you to all the donors and people who shared. 

The adventure goes on !

#the camera project


Look back at LPDE's first crowdfunding campaign!

For 2 months, LPDE organized a fundraising campaign in partnership with the Airavata Foundation in Cambodia.

A new elephant was born in Cambodia. There had been no births in a reserve in the country for 30 years.


It is a female who was born on the night of December 25th. She was named Achariyeak Noëlle in Khmer, which means the miracle of Noëlle.



We have4 cameras that we have installed in order to observe and obtain photos of animals passing by.

Therefirst camera was placed in rocky mountains at 1,100 meters and aims to observe the different species that take this area as shelter.

Theresecond was put in a humid forest at 660 meters, where water buffalo footprints were observed. The goal was to record mammals crossing the river.

As for thethird camera, this was placed in a dry, wooded mountain ridge 700 meters away, where buffalo and deer tracks could be seen. The objective is to record the mammals that use this track to move from one valley to another.

Finally, thefourth and last camera was placed close to a rainforest, tributary of the Salween River, 260 meters away. The objective was to observe the mammals crossing this river.

THE CHINESE GRAY GORAL:Naemorhedus griseus 



They are massively hunted by local populations for their meat, their fur, but also for medicinal purposes.


This animal was very heavily hunted in Thailand, but not as much as now.


This animal has not been too affected by the loss of its natural habitat because it lives in rugged spaces that are inaccessible to humans. 

THE INDOCHINE SARO:Capricornis milneedwardsi



There is a rapid decline of the species in Southeast Asia due to their hunting for their meat, horns and other body parts.


They are also threatened by poaching, and the deforestation of their natural habitats. 


The plant species most consumed by this animal are medicinal herbs, so these animals have been massively exploited by local populations.




The fragmentation and degradation of their habitat has caused water buffaloes to invade and raid villagers' crops for food.


Being a herbivorous animal, this animal has suffered greatly from deforestation and forest degradation.


Buffaloes are also threatened by hunting rituals for their horns and meat.

Another threat to its survival is that it can catch livestock diseases very easily.

THE GAUR:Bos frontalis



In Myanmar, one of the threats to the survival of this buffalo is hunting for its meat.


It is also threatened by the international trade in its horns used for decoration, and its internal organs used for medical purposes.

THE SAMBAR:Rusa unicolor



These animals are hunted by dogs, firearms and snares. Their meat is often resold and participates in the global South East Asian meat trade.


The males of this species are hunted even more because their antlers are considered trophies and are used in traditional medicine.

THE BARKING DEER: Muntiacus muntjak 

(speciesless worrying)


These animals are threatened by hunting in China and in South East Asian countries as well as by the loss of their natural habitat due to deforestation.

THE LARGE SPOT CIVET:Vivera magaspila 



These animals are threatened in particular by their hunting which contributes to a very large trade,  using non-selective methods such as the use of traps.

In addition, there is an increasing demand for civet used in luxury meals in China and Vietnam.


THE LEOPARD :Panthera pardus 



Leopards are threatened because their natural habitat has been reduced, and the forest is razed to create agricultural areas.


They are also targets for farmers because they consider them hunting trophies.


In China and Indonesia, leopards are illegally trafficked for their skin and bones. Their skin is also heavily used in traditional ceremonies and other parts of their bodies are used for medicine.

Our teams have also identified other small mammals such as:

The Northern Pigtailed Macaque:macaca leonina

The crab-eating mongoose:

Herpestes urva

Malaysian porcupine:

Hystrix brachyura

The three-banded palm civet: 

Arctogalidia trivirgata

The yellow-throated marten: 

Martes flavigula 


During this study year,15 different species have been observed witha total of 101 individuals.


The data collected does not estimate the population of these species but gives an idea of the diversity of the fauna in this area.

In summary, we have therefore recorded 3 species which are listed as “endangered” by the IUCN and 6 other species are classified as “vulnerable”.

In order to have more detailed results, we constructed visual diagrams which illustrate the different species of mammals. 

Total number of species recorded:
