Checklist of extant species recorded in Prey Preah Roka Wildlife Sanctuary, Cambodia
The data in this checklist resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 251 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Prey Preah Roka Wildlife Sanctuary (PPRWS) forms a wildlife corridor between KPWS and CWS. Taken together, the area forms a critical part of the upper catchment for the Stung Sen River, the largest undammed tributary to Tonle Sap Lake, making this head water nationally important for climate resilience and food security. Its total area is 90,361 ha, and the site is managed by the Ministry of Environment (MoE). The site is supported by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Cambodia program.
