Giant Stingray Returned to Mekong River in Conservation Effort

Phnom Penh, Cambodia - A remarkable rescue operation took place on February 14, 2024, as a 110 kg stingray was safely returned to the waters of the Mekong River. The Fisheries Administration has lauded the efforts of Tycoon Lim Sroy, who played a pivotal role in the stingray's rescue and subsequent release, allowing it to thrive once again in its natural habitat.

This act of conservation has been highlighted as a shining example of the positive impact individuals can have on wildlife preservation. The Fisheries Administration has praised the initiative for its significant contribution to the protection and conservation of endangered species. Such actions are deemed crucial for ensuring the survival of these magnificent creatures, allowing them to continue to exist in their natural environments for future generations to appreciate.

Stingrays, among the largest freshwater fish found in Cambodia, have seen a dramatic decline in numbers over the past century, placing them on the endangered species list. This successful rescue and release operation underscores the importance of conservation efforts in reversing the fortunes of these threatened species and preserving Cambodia's rich biodiversity.
