The Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre (PTWRC; French: Parc Zoologique de Phnom Tamao) is a wildlife center located roughly 25 miles (40 km) by road south of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The center was established in 1995 and with an area of over 6,000 acres of protected regenerating forest, this is the largest zoo in Cambodia. Since 2001, PTWRC has been run by the government institution of the Cambodian Forestry Administration in partnership with an environmental non-profit organization called Wildlife Alliance. Wildlife Alliance animal husbandry specialists, veterinarians, and caretakers assist in the feeding and care of animals and operations. PTWRC currently houses over 1,200 rescued animals from 102 species including endangered Asian elephants, tigers, Pileated gibbons, Siamese crocodiles, and Malayan sun bears, among many others. Many of the species are listed as Endangered or Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
A captive breeding and release program for the critically endangered Siamese crocodile led by Fauna & Flora International operates out of facilities at Phnom Tamao.
