article1_2.jpgAaaaaaaand they're off!

Two of our very own staff members, Research Officer Julie Matthews and Director Nic Dunn have set off for some adventures in Vietnam.

They will be spending some time visiting the Cuc Phuong National Park- Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation ProgrammeShaldon Wildlife Trust has been instrumental in the development of this project, in 2013 two Owston's civets were sent to Vietnam from Shaldon and Newquay zoos, showing that even small zoos can have a very BIG impact on conservation all over the globe.

The CPCP is based in the Ninh Binh province of Vietnam. Programme staff there care for a small collection of carnivores, especially Owston’s civets, and pangolins that have been confiscated or rescued from the wildlife trade. Nic and Julie, along with Stuart Muir of Newquay Zoo will be helping the project with it's growth and development.

Whilst away they are also hoping to participate in some loris tracking, and exchange some valuable knowledge with local educators in an effort to strengthen our links with conservation in the field.

Please join us in wishing them luck and of course some fun, and we will post a photo filled update here on their return!

Chúc may mắn Nic and Julie!
