On June 28, ENV team in Ho Chi Minh City organized a talk called “Score a goal for wildlife” for the members of the Drink and English club in city central.
The topics under discussion were the consumption of wildlife in Vietnam, its consequences and appropriate solutions. This encouraged participants to actively share ideas on how to “Score a goal for wildlife”. Everyone can join in the game by saying NO to wildlife consumption, reporting wildlife crimes to local authorities or using our toll free wildlife protection hotline 1800 1522.
