WCS VIETNAM

Viet Nam is one of the largest destination countries and processors of illegal wildlife products in the world. A wide range of species are of concern and at risk of extinction because of overexploitation and habitat loss. In 2007, the Viet Nam Red List identified 882 species (418 animals and 464 plants) as threatened, an increase of 161 species from the first assessment (1992 – 1996). In this time 10 species moved from being classified as endangered to extinct in the wild.

 

The Wildlife Conservation Society Vietnam program has worked in Vietnam since 2006 with a focus on combatting illegal wildlife trafficking. WCS Vietnam works to degrade, disrupt, and dismantle wildlife trafficking networks and reduce poaching pressure on wildlife populations. WCS Vietnam has strong relationships with government law enforcement agencies and works with the Vietnamese Government to enhance their ability to successfully stamp out the illegal wildlife trade.
