Offer to help 'horrid' zoo

I just read the letter to the editor that someone else had sent you regarding the

horrid conditions of the Angkor Zoo in Siem Reap.

As a recent visitor to Cambodia, I too was shocked at the atrocious conditions of

this zoo. I realize that Cambodia is in need everywhere, but this is no way to create

a conservation-minded environment for these unique yet sorely malnourished and unhealthy

looking animals, let alone create an opportunity for return tourists and visitors.

I am very interested in returning to Siem Reap, and if I can contact this zoo I may

be interested in assisting them in fundraising in order to create a healthier zoo.

Do you know who the zoo director is, or how I might reach him/her?
