Ho Chi Minh City: Bear event at Big C
From September 18-19, the recently established ENV team in Ho Chi Minh City held their second ever Bear Protection event at the Big C supermarket. During the event, films on bear bile extraction were aired and information boards displayed about bear species in Vietnam. Over the 2-day event, 860 pledges not to use bear bile and bear products were collected by ENV staff. Bear exhibitions are regular ENV events, held throughout Vietnam to raise public awareness about the need to protect Vietnam’s bears.
