The Sangkhae River (also spelled Stung Sangkae or Stung Sangké) is one of the main rivers in Battambang Province in north western Cambodia. The Sangker River is approximately 250 kilometres (160 mi) long. It flows through 6 districts and 27 communes in Battambang province before draining into the Tonlé Sap lake. The average depth of the river, based on raw data provided by the Battambang's Department of Water Resource (2013) is during the dry season 2.35 metres (7.7 ft) and during the wet season 6.79 metres (22.3 ft).
 In 2013, members of MJP's conservation wildlife enforcement teams, including MJP CEO Stephan Bognar, conducted one of the first (documented) riverine patrols on the Sangkae River - covering over 65 kilometres (40 mi) in two days. Since 2003, MJP has been the leading conservation NGO protecting the upper section of the Sangkae River located in Samlout Protected Area - the last intact tropical forest in Battambang and Pailin provinces. The northern (or upper) part of the river has the strongest (and most dangerous) currents.
