A 5-year look back in saving Vietnam’s precious wildlife
We celebrated SVW’s 5th anniversary

The event marked an important milestone of SVW Center, which achieved outstanding achievements during the 5-year process of founding and development to carry out the mission of "Stop the extinction and champion the recovery of threatened species in Vietnam” and a vision to ensure Vietnam's wildlife is always safe.

SVW highly appreciates and acknowledges our generous donors, partners, and everyone who has been helping us achieve our mission since 2014. Our work would not be possible without your help!

The RRT travelled for 8 hours during the night to the rescue location, but unfortunately, 3 of the 10 pangolins died before the team arrived, the remaining seven ones were transferred to our rescue center in Cuc Phuong the day after. The animals are now receiving medical treatment and care at the quarantine enclosures.

New semi-wild enclosure to rehabiltate animal

After the completion of the Naturalistic Pre-release area with the area of 1500m2, a number of animals that requires a lot of time to recover and gain back their natural instincts have been transferred to this area with the goal being trained, and later on, assessed on their natural behaviours. The animals have shown keen interest and positive activeness in this new enclosure.

National consulting workshop on wildlife conservation education materials

Ho Chi Minh City - July 18, Ngan and Nga participated in the National consulting workshop on wildlife conservation education materials for primary students. The team contributed ideas, pangolin photos and videos to enrich the materials, raise understanding of two Vietnamese Pangolin species.
