Hello everyone, Nic and Julie here. We wanted to share with you all some of the fantastic news from here in the field. We hope you have been enjoying our updates, and it is with pleasure that we tell you about the most exciting new development here in Vietnam.
The work carried out at the Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Programme has been evolving over the last 15 years, and has grown to be a centre of excellence for welfare, husbandry and research for some of Vietnam's threatened carnivore species. Moving forward, a new Non Government Organisation has been created called Save Vietnams Wildlife, which it is hoped will continue to support the work of the CPCP and work alongside rangers, to stop the illegal trade in wildlife here in Vietnam. Already, we have seen developments in new websites, promotional literature and relationships with other rescue centres helping to share knowledge, expertise and a chance to rehabilitate and release animals rescued from trade.
The next phase is the construction of a visitor centre in Cuc Phuong National Park, where people can learn not just about the animals based in the centre, but of the need to protect all of Vietnam's biodiversity.
The team are enthusiastic, motivated and above all 100% committed to the preservation of their own flora and fauna. It has been a pleasure to see first hand the work being done here and we look forward to our continuing support of this important work.
