In Brief: Band works with NGO to save Nature

Dengue Fever, a rock band fronted by Cambodian-American singer Chhom Nimol, has partnered with the environmental organisation Wildlife Alliance to help conserve Cambodia's threatened flora and fauna. Last week - in addition to releasing the soundtrack to a documentary about the band - Dengue Fever kicked off the partnership at a show in Virginia. "We want to preserve Cambodia's rich cultural heritage, just like Wildlife Alliance is working to protect Cambodia wildlife species and forests," Dengue Fever guitarist Zac Holtzman said in a press release. The band and Wildlife Alliance hope to work together to hold benefit concerts, release charity remixes and make online commercials about conservation in Cambodia, the press release said.
