Three illegal bears have been confiscated from the home of a bear trafficker in Nghe An, Vietnam in what was one of the toughest operations undertaken thus far by Education for Nature – Vietnam (ENV).
ENV, acting on information received from the public, pinpointed the location of the Nghe An farm, established the status of the bears concerned and prevailed upon the local authorities in Nghe An to act. After some foot dragging by the authorities since being informed in April, the matter was only finally resolved this week with the “voluntary transfer” of three bears.
Customs and other law enforcement agencies now have a new ENV guide to help identify freshwater turtles and tortoises.
We have updated the 2010 edition in the light of the new Penal Code and changes to the protection status of some turtle species. The guide, developed in partnership with the Asian Turtle Program and the Turtle Conservation Center at Cuc Phuong National Park, features 25 species and includes identification features, habitat, and the current status of each species, as well as comparisons.
A total of 1,700 copies of the guide will be circulated to those at the sharp end of wildlife crime involving turtles.
The latest edition of the ENV Wildlife Crime Bulletin is out, so bag yourself a copy.
As usual, the publication highlights some of the most prominent issues behind the illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam and the efforts of ENV and the authorities as partners in conservation. Download WCB-No-1-2019 today.

A short movie extolling the better life for bears awaiting them at a rescue center has been released today by Education for Nature – Vietnam. The movie, along with a companion hard copy brochure, is being supplied to Vietnam’s remaining bear owners and local Forest Protection Departments in order to speed up the end of bear farming in Vietnam.
At the end of 2019, Education for Nature – Vietnam (ENV) will host Vietnam’s third Outstanding Achievement Awards for Wildlife Protection event in Hanoi.
The awards provide an ideal opportunity to recognize and honor those representatives of law enforcement agencies, the courts and procuracies, as well as some of the agencies they work for that have made important contributions to the protection of Vietnam’s wildlife.
