DMC Image Of The Month
The DMC image of the month was acquired over the Tonlé Sap Lake in Cambodia. Situated to the East of Tonlé Sap, along the lakes edge, lies the Boeng Tonle Chhmar Wildlife Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is over 28,000 hectors of protected forest and is home to a number of diverse species in plants and wildlife. Many of the local species are listed as rare, vulnerable or globally endangered.
The Boeng Tonle Chhmar Sanctuary has its own waterway system which is located on the flood plain of the Tonlé Sap; this flood plain in turn is a part of the Mekong River Basin.
Further to the South is the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre. To the North of the Tonlé Sap Lake is the Phnom Kulen National Park, located in the Phnom Kulen mountain range.
