    The Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center in Cambodia is well worth a visit. I last visited here about for years ago. I was most impressed at how much could be achieved in very difficult circumstances. The video link below shows something of the current situation.

    Wow, that is great. And such large natural enclosures - fantastic. Did you see any small cats there?

    At the time of my visit it was mainly bears and primates. I don't doubt that they have had small cats through the system though. They do try to put animals back as soon as possible. I am not sure how far they got with the Hairy-nosed otter. Now that really would have been a treat to see!

    I’ve volunteered here twice for Free The Bears who look after approximately 90 sun bears and 40 moon bears on site. November 2015 and May 2016. I desperately want to go back again, it is one of my favourite places on Earth!
