Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Programme
Shaldon Wildlife Trust have 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.
Now incorporated into Save Vietnams Wildlife, the Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Project (CPCP) is based at the Cuc Phuong National Park 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.
Cat Tien National Park
An island within the Cat Tien National Park in Vietnam is home to a centre that is run by Monkey World in Dorset primarily focusing on the conservation of gibbons. They have evolved into a project for the rescue and rehabilitation and release of Pygmy slow loris and other primates over the past few years and Shaldon Wildlife Trust helps to fund this work.
