Education for Nature - Vietnam

Who we are: 
Education for Nature-Vietnam (ENV) was established in 2000 as Vietnam’s first non-governmental organization focused on the conservation of nature and the environment. Our mission is to foster greater understanding amongst the Vietnamese public about environmental issues of local, national and global significance, ranging from the protection of wildlife and natural ecosystems to climate change.
Type of knowledge or skills needed: 
ENV's Wildlife Volunteer Network was established in 2007, and today there is a network of over a 3550 volunteers throughout the country. Volunteers actively assist ENV to protect wildlife by reporting wildlife crimes, monitoring businesses in their home area, and getting others involved. Thanks to our Wildlife Volunteers, restaurants have stopped selling wildlife, smugglers have been punished, and hundreds of animals have been rescued from the trade.
Non-cash donations: 
With more public involvement, we can bring an end to wildlife crime in Vietnam. Get others involved! Participate in other ENV awareness activities in your area. Active volunteers may wish to become more involved in ENV activities, such as increasing local awareness about protecting wildlife or conducting surveys with ENV Wildlife Crime Unit staff.

Any further information the volunteer should know?: 
If you observe wildlife or products made from wildlife in restaurants, markets, hotels, or elsewhere in Vietnam let us know immediately. Call our toll-free hotline number - 1800 1522 - and make a report to one of our English-speaking staff members (from inside Vietnam only). You can remain anonymous if you wish, or if you prefer, give us your contact details so we can keep you informed of the outcome of the case you have reported.
