The Eastern Plains Landscape supports the largest global population of this species of wild cattle
Today, the most significant population in Cambodia (several hundred individuals) remaines that in the Eastern Plains Landscape, where protection efforts have probably stabilised declines locally. However, this banteng population is under considerable pressure from habitat loss and hunters as is evident from confiscated banteng trophies and meat. Diseases and parasites from domestic and feral livestock pose further serious threats to banteng survival. As a result, WWF is enforcing a ban of all domestic cattle in the strict protection zones of Mondulkiri Protected Forest and Phnom Prich Wildlife Sanctuary.
