Koh Karang Baseline Report   Knai Bang Chat

Over the past few months we have been traveling from Koh Seh to Koh Karang, a small island on the border of Kampot and Kep provinces. After receiving an invitation from Knai Bang Chat (Kep's leading sustainable boutique Hotel) and the Ministry of Environment, we engaged in a series of marine surveys to assess the reefs and benthic areas directly adjacent to Koh Karang. A full set of marine surveys were needed to create a baseline data set and gather other information on the feasibility of Koh Karang becoming a Marine Protected Zone.

This work took a lot longer than expected due to monsoon weather conditions, but now all surveys are completed and you can read the report on the initial results here.
