On July 28, newly arrived Deputy Chief of Mission Michael Newbill opened an anti-snaring art exhibit at Felix Café. The exhibit, organized by the environmental non-governmental organization Wildlife Alliance, uses innovative art to highlight the devastating impact of snares on Cambodian biodiversity. Artist Dou Pathlimata, also known by her artistic name, “Apple Love”, used photos that imagine Cambodian celebrities caught in snares to humanize the issue of snaring.
Members of the public interested in seeing the exhibit can come to the Daylight Plaza Aeon Mall on Thursday, August 3, from 9:00a.m.-9:00p.m. There will be activities for children including face painting and story time from 2:00 to 5:00p.m and speeches and traditional dance performances from 5:30p.m. onwards. Please join the exhibit to see the amazing art and learn more about the link between wildlife meat consumption and the lethal and indiscriminate injuries that snares cause.
