On December 8th 2010, the PRCF hosted their first public engagement event named “Cocktail for a Cause” in support of wildlife species and indigenous peoples’ projects in South-east Asia. The focus of the event was the “Tiger Conservation” project at the Lomphat Wildlife Sanctuary in Cambodia, and the “Ikat and Environment” project in Indonesia. Video displays were used to raise awareness of efforts in these two PRCF Country Programs. Visit the event’s blog for details on the event, and to have access to the images and videos relating to the cocktail.
In August 2010, the PRCF sent two representatives: Simi Bhagwandass (Program Development Officer) and Julie Cao (Governance and Communications Officer) on their first campaign in the United States aiming to raise awareness of, and funds for, the Foundations programming throughout South East Asia.

The PRCF works with rural populations in developing countries, particularly with communities living adjacent to protected areas, remnant forests, and degraded lands and grasslands.
