Site description
This IBA consists of Dak Dam stream, which defines a section of the border between Vietnam and Cambodia. Dak Dam stream supports relatively undisturbed riverine forest, one of the most threatened habitat types in South-East Asia.

Key biodiversity
The site is important for its populations of Green Peafowl Pavo muticus and White-winged Duck Cairina scutulata.

Non-bird biodiversity: Long-tailed Macaque Macaca fascicularis has been recorded at Dak Dam Stream (Brickle et al., 1998).Brickle et al. (1998) recorded Asian Elephant Elephas maximus, Gaur Bos gaurus and Banteng Bos javanicus at Dak Dam Stream. However, Brickle et al. could not rule out the possibility that the tracks used to record Asian Elephant came from domestic animals.
