Young volunteer involved in wildlife transfer for the second time
On December 15, high school student Loan Phuong from Hanoi voluntarily handed over two keeled box turtles (Cuora mouhotii) to ENV’s Wildlife Crime Unit. Phuong was amongst the volunteers honored at ENV’s Annual Volunteer Meeting for 2010. This is the second time she has handed over turtles to ENV for transfer to the Turtle Conservation Center at Cuc Phuong NP. The keeled box turtle is regarded by CITES as a rare and endangered species.
