Cambodia | Rare striped-back weasel discovered in Vircachey NP

The stripe-backed weasel, a rare carnivorous species, has been discovered in Virachey National Park in Ratanakkiri province, bordering the forested regions of Laos and Vietnam.

Writing about the discovery in the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Small Carnivore Specialist Group’s latest biannual journal titled “Small Carnivore Conservation”, researchers Greg McCann, from Taiwan’s Chang Gung University, and Keith Pawlowski, from State University of New York, said that the images of the stripe-backed weasel were discovered by them as they were going through digital photos of a three-year camera-trapping survey in Virachey National Park carried out by Habitat ID and Virachey National Park staff.
