Hanoi, HCM City host exhibitions to combat wildlife trafficking

Two exhibitions to raise public awareness on illegal wildlife trafficking will be held in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City on September 23-24.

They are jointly held by the Education for Nature Vietnam and the US Agency for International Development, and are funded by Asia’s Regional Response to Endangered Species Trafficking (ARREST) Programme.

On display will be videos on the wildlife situation in Vietnam and quizzes on wildlife farming and traditional medicine.

The exhibitions will also encourage people to join the cause against the trafficking of endangered wildlife by becoming a member of the National Wildlife Protection Volunteer Network which allows them to monitor and report wildlife trafficking crime.
