It has been the month of love and gratitude. We are thankful for the existence of the magnificent scaly friend on World Pangolin Day. We also could not express enough of our gratitude for the dedicated donors and supporters around the world!

You have listened to us, fundraised for us, supported us, helped us raise so much awareness about the pangolins! Our crowdfunding campaign reached our goal. We celebrated by cherishing the moment 29 rescued pangolins walking home. Our Anti-poaching team is getting bigger to strengthen law enforcement at Pu Mat National Park. Thank you for standing with us in our conservation mission!

World Pangolin Day’s Celebration

On World Pangolin Day, we organized several activities to celebrate this special day for the magnificent creature.

You has helped us raised USD 6,371 in the #Save500Pangolins crowdfunding campaign for our pangolin’s conservation activities this year.

Our online campaign hit a new goal. We will use these donations to cover our activities in rescue, rehabilitation and release the pangolins throughout the year.

29 scaly friends returned to their natural home

For this special day, we went on a long way trip to release 29 pangolins into the wild. It took us 4 days of continuous drive and 2000 kilometers to reach the release place.

There were two pangopups released together with their moms. The mother pangolins gave birth at our center shortly after their rescue. The captive team took so much effort to take care of them. The pangolins have been through a harsh winter, but they persevered to stay healthy and in good shape. The moment the pangolin family walked to freedom, our team just burst with joy. Since Miracle and her mother, the first mother-baby case successfully released back to the wild, we have not seen this miracle again until now.

We bid them farewell and hope they will live a happy life without any harm.

A night visit to meet the pangolins

Last but not least, we organized a special night tour at our center. During this tour, people had a chance to visit the pangolins in close distance in their feeding time - their most active period of the day. 

We welcomed 23 supporters, both local and foreigners. This was some of the visitors’ first time to see this prehistoric friend. Imagine how exciting that must have been for them!

Fundraising Auction dinner in Sydney

Our veterinary, Mr. Kim Hai, together with our friends from Taronga Zoo, Michelle and Brad organized an auction dinner to raise funds to save the pangolins for Save Vietnam’s Wildlife.

At the dinner, we sold beautiful paintings of pangolins’ tail-prints. The paintings were inspired by true and emotional stories of SVW’s pangolin rescue and rehabilitation journey.The memorabilia are pangolin tails which were carefully preserved and turned into inspirational works of art by SVW’s designer and talented artist - My Linh.

The first dinner took place on 21st February in Sydney, successfully raised AUD 3,140.

The upcoming night will happen on 17th March, also in Sydney, with various awesome prizes for participants.

If you are in Sydney around that time or have friends in Sydney, please share this event!

Education activities

Vowed to save the pangolins, children have brought hope to conservation.

At the same time, our school program team kept themselves so busy with their nature exploring trip “Protect the wildlife we love” for 8-year-old primary students. So many beautiful and informative conservation messages have been brought to the students on World Pangolin Day!

What we cherished the most must be when seeing the students express their love for “their friends - the cute pangolins” on the postcards, as they promised out loud to try their hardest to protect this beautiful creature. The students and teachers also drew inspiring paintings of the pangolins. The artworks are currently displayed at their school and SVW Education center.

"Valuing Nature in Childhood” Program

- After a long holiday, 5-year-olds kids were very excited when they came to discover Cuc Phuong forest. 10 trips with 250 students and 42 parents, teachers were successfully organized in February. At the beginning of spring, plants have begun to sprout with lots of interesting things in the forest, which gave the kids a wonderful experience.

“Protect the Wildlife We Love” Program

- Operating every weekend, there were 12 trips with 293 students and 24 teachers all together discovered the wonderful nature of Cuc Phuong forest and learned more about wildlife at the Carnivore and Pangolin Education Center. The final trip for students from Yen Nghiep primary school was held on 3 March 2019.
Let kids amaze you with their compassion for wildlife. The future of conservation truly looked a little brighter that day in Cuc Phuong National Park!

Bring “Green life” closer to children - Recycling Festival

SVW's education officer supported teachers and students of Cuc Phuong primary school to implement the interesting recycling festival. From the bottles and cans that are no longer in use, the students recycle them into beautiful flower pots placed in front of their classrooms. The students also prepared presentations on environment and wildlife conservation. Hopefully with the support and encouragement from SVW, the students will help spread conservation messages to students and teachers of other primary schools in Nho Quan district.

Captive news:

Improving quality of health care for the animal

The veterinary team performed quarantine exams on our two Owston's Palm Civets.

After detailed evaluation, both of the civets have been deemed healthy young males. Our veterinarian, Huong, led the procedures and trained two veterinary students on a variety of clinical skills.

Out Vet clinic continuously received medical equipments which were donated by supporters from all over the world. We recently get two ultrasounds from generous veterinarians from US and the Netherlands. Therefore, the vet team were able to do intense health check for Mr. B, the binturong as well as other pangolins under our care at the moment.

The modern equipment helps our team improve a lot in healthcare and disease management for the animal.

Training for new Anti-poaching Team

The new Anti-poaching team, including 8 members, has been going through 2-week training in Cuc Phuong National Park. The team needs to learn about the general conservation knowledge, wildlife protection law, how to identify different species, and many forest technique skill like using SMART software for patrolling. Working with two rescue centers: Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Program (CPCP) and Endangered Primate Rescue Center (EPRC), they have access to hands-on experiences about how to rescue, take care and release wildlife back to the wild.

While the new team was in training, the other Anti-poaching rangers still conducted patrolling in different areas of Pu Mat National Park and strictly handled any violated cases they found. 

Here is the summary of their work.
