The Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity (ACCB) is the first nature conservation centre in Cambodia. The ACCB contributes to the conservation of wildlife and biodiversity in Cambodia through wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, release, breeding, environmental education and conservation research. Join us for a guided tour of the rescue centre at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. This is the only way to visit the ACCB as we are normally closed to the public. Tour lasts about 2 hours and requires a minimum donation of $3 USD. Please arrive on time for the tours. Late-comers cannot be accommodated.

This place isn't well known but it should be! The tour was very interesting and educational. The Centre is doing great work rescuing and rehabilitating suitable animals as well as breeding endangered species.

The guide was wonderful and let me in with the group, even though we were a little late. I did not know the tour only started at specific times, so we just made the 9am tour. A terrific experience and informative. The birds are incredible.
