Press Release: Green Forest No.17
Green Tropical Forests
Education for Nature – Vietnam (ENV) is pleased to announce the release of Rung Xanh (Green Forest) No. 17, focused on Tropical Forests. This newest edition of ENV’s student activity book introduces students to the life, structure, and ecology of Vietnam’s rich tropical forests, illustrating why forests are important to humans, and characterizing the major threats to Vietnam’s forests.
As usual, Green Forest includes contributions from students and educators from throughout the country, but also comprises activities, games, cartoons, and stories that provide an enjoyable way for students to learn about key issues relating to nature and the environment, and a forum through which students can exchange their ideas and contribute to efforts to raise awareness among their peers about the need to protect their environment.
ENV wishes to thank representatives from the following projects, organizations, and institutions for facilitating local contributions to this issue; Cuc Phuong National Park Conservation Awareness Program, Cat Tien National Park EEEC, PARC Ba Be, PARC Na Hang, Xuan Thuy National Park and local teachers, Ha Long Marine Conservation Project (FFI), Bach Ma National Park, the Black Gibbon and Hoang Lien Conservation Projects (FFI), Birdlife International, Frontier Sa Pa, Frontier Bai Tu Long, Hue Nature Care, the SOS Village, and the Hanoi Bird Club,
Green Forest is distributed free to participating community-based environmental education programs throughout Vietnam. ENV would like to encourage other school children and environmental education programs in Vietnam to contribute to the next issue of Green Forest (deadline March 31) focused on Wetlands.
ENV wishes to thank the Whitley Awards Foundation, Cat Tien National Park, and the Netherlands Embassy for supporting this important educational resource.
ENV would also like to thank Professor Pham Nhat of the Xuan Mai Forestry College for his input and assistance on this issue.
