Every day, thousands of animals are hunted from forests across Indochina, packed into crates and cages and shipped off to restaurants and markets where they are slaughtered for food and medicine.
Sadly, most of Vietnam’s wildlife can be found in the cooking pot, soaking in a vat of wildlife wine, sold as traditional medicine, kept as pets, or mounted on the wall as trophies. Unfortunately, few species are immune to the danger of ending up as victims of the wildlife trade.
ENV is committed to bringing an end to the illegal trade of Vietnam’s wildlife. In this Gallery, you can learn more about the key species groups and the wildlife crimes that put their future at risk.
