Bear page launched on ENV’s Vietnamese website
On July 27, 2010, a new bear page was officially launched on ENV’s Vietnamese website. In addition to general information about Vietnam’s two bear species, visitors to the page can learn about threats to the survival of Vietnam’s bears in the wild through a photo gallery and video clips. Insights are also available into the illegal bear tourism in Ha Long City and visitors can also easily pledge online for bear protection. Since 2008, ENV has collected more than 35,000 pledges not to use bear bile. At the most recent public event in Dam Sen Park in Ho Chi Minh City, ENV’s Mobile Awareness Team collected around 1,000 pledges.
The creation of the page is part of ENV’s ongoing efforts to stop illegal bear crime and encourage the public to participate in protecting Vietnam’s endangered bears.
