One of Vietnam’s best-known comedians has today become ENV’s Rhino Ambassador, in recognition of his dedication to the protection of rhinos in Vietnam

Mr. Nguyen Xuan Bac, who is known for his roles in films and popular live comedy acts, was awarded the title at today’s press conference in Hanoi, which also marked the return of our Vietnamese delegation from South Africa.


Sep20-Xuan Bac Rhino Embassador

As Rhino Ambassador, Xuan Bac will reach out to his hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese fans to share his experiences from South Africa and encourage them to say no to rhino horn.


“It is an honor to be named an ENV Rhino Ambassador today,” said Xuan Bac. “I am passionately against the use of rhino horn, and I wish everyone in Vietnam could witness the brutal scenes I did to better understand the severity of this crisis. People who buy and consume rhino horn are foolish – it has no health benefits and is a complete waste of money.”

We are delighted to have Xuan Bac officially on board to help drive home the message! His new role builds on his history of working to support our other wildlife campaigns, including our efforts to reduce the consumption of bear bile and other derivative products.
