Cambodia

    A colony of one of the world’s largest turtles has been found in a remote stretch of the Mekong in Cambodia, raising hopes the species can be saved from extinction, environmentalists said. Scientists of Conservation International, WWF and Cambodia’s fisheries department said they had caught and freed a female Asian giant soft-shell turtle during a March survey and a nesting ground in the northeastern province of Stung Treng.
