Dear our friends and supporters,

Last month, more rescues had been conducted with the first time of rescuing a Dhole and Golden Jackal. While some pangolins are already home, the otters are excited for their next release at the end of May. Although Covid19 has suspended some of our activities, all the team seem to have innovated their ways to keep working safely and promoting others during the pandemic.

And now, let's see how our efforts have paid off.

3 pangolins had come back home, 5 others and some otters are ready for their next journeys to be home

After a long time of social distancing restriction due to COVID 19, everything seems to be more easing than before and it was such a great time for three healthy pangolins to be home again. All our keepers are back to work as normal to ensure 5 other pangolins and the otters are ready for the next release. Up to now, all the animals have been showing the positive signs of self-survival in the wild. Let's pray for their next release.

Otters are ready for their next release
More rescues comparing to the last two months and the first time rescuing a Dhole and a Golden Jackal

Our rapid response team seems to be busier at the end of April as three sudden rescues had been done within 5 days in the Cuc Phuong rescue center. A little Sunda pangolin around 3 months old was transferred by Binh Dinh forest rangers on the 23rd of April. Two days later, the team hurried up to rescue a Dhole and a Golden Jackal from a province nearby. Both animals were found in really miserable conditions and bad diarrhea and seemed to lose all their natural protective instincts. And then on the 28th of April, two Chinese ferret badgers and one crab-eating mongo had been delivered to the rescue center at night while the badgers were seriously injured by traps.

Sharing burden with Vet team

Taking care of baby pangolins, four seriously injured animals, and monitoring more than 80 animals at both our rescue centers while still joining the rescue were tough tasks to our veterinary team. Luckily, we found “three little vet girls” who are not reluctant to dedicate themselves and be always willing to save animals. With limited human resources and medical facilities, the team can not make big differences for every single animal we rescued. However, for many animals, especially two serious injured badgers aforementioned, the team has healed them. After amputation surgeries, both the badgers are recovering well so far.

Very first SVW’s online course about wildlife conservation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our school programs have been delayed. However, adversity brings wisdom, the pandemic can not stop the team’s ambition to inspire the love for wildlife and nature to the future generations. Instead of organizing class-based lessons or experiencing tours at our center, a wildlife conservation real-time course has been launched to propagate the message “Stop wildlife consumption and stop support for products originated from wildlife”. The very first course was delivered to 35 students of Nguyen Khuyen High School. After the course, students were so excited and engaged in the course. “The first lesson is so interesting, I have a chance to know more about SVW and the Cuc Phuong national park, I can not wait for the next lesson. Thank you all for organizing the lesson for us”, a student, Cong Minh said. The wildlife conservation club from these students will keep creating actions to reach out to the message and supportive action for wildlife protection in the future.

Online illegal wildlife trade investigation updates

SVW continues to monitor online illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam and its impacts on the program’s focal species. There were at least 24 different small carnivore species observed on the internet from January to April. Most of the posts are for selling, buying live animals or animal products, some are for displaying wildlife traps and collection, or pets. At least five posts of 10 live Owston’s Civet trade have been encountered. SVW has been following the cases, and also reported to ENV for further investigation.

Marking pangolin project updates

Analyzing data of the project to mark pangolins after release in the captivity at Cuc Phuong National Park, the initial result shows that the attached devices can be easily detected by image traps and do not affect the activities of individuals.

Site protection
No matter how challenges are, we still here to save the forest and fight for our love with nature and the animals

A rainy night sleeping on hammocks in the forest

In last month, there was a positive site of lessening guns and traps collected with other months with two guns, 15 traps confiscated. The anti-poaching team had detected 20 people illegally logging into the forest and four people poachers going along with dogs. However, one illegal logger had escaped. The team also warned 14 people and handled one poacher in the Pu Mat’s border area. Besides, six illegal camps had been detected and destroyed immediately.  "No matter how challenges are, we still here to save the forest and fight for our love with nature and the animals", Trung - one of our anti-poaching members shared.
