Siamese Crocodiles

150 individuals

The largest wild population of Siamese crocodiles occurs in Cambodia, where less than 150 individuals are thought to survive at several widely scattered locations.

Siamese crocodiles are considered Critically Endangered. Although estimates vary, no more than a few hundred remain in the wild, widely scattered across a number of sites. They face many threats, including the conversion of their wetland habitat to agriculture, population fragmentation, hunting for their commercially valuable skin, conflicts with livestock and humans, and incidental drowning in fishing gear. Our primary goal for Siamese crocodiles is the recovery of viable populations in the range states where we work.
