Education for Nature-Vietnam (ENV) was established in 2000 as Vietnam’s first non-governmental organization focused on the conservation of nature and the environment. Our mission is to foster greater understanding amongst the Vietnamese public about environmental issues of local, national and global significance, ranging from the protection of wildlife and natural ecosystems to climate change. We employ creative and innovative strategies to influence attitudes and mobilize Vietnamese citizens to live in balance with the natural world and to take action to protect Vietnam’s precious environment.   ENV's three latest campaigns End crime against bears Read more...

Our mission is to foster greater understanding amongst the Vietnamese public about environmental issues of local, national and global significance, ranging from the protection of wildlife and natural ecosystems to climate change. We employ creative and innovative strategies to influence attitudes and mobilize Vietnamese citizens to live in balance with the natural world and to take action to protect Vietnam’s precious environment.   ENV Programs ENV specializes in four major program areas that collectively form ENV’s integrated and strategic approach toward achievement of our mission.  These include: Combating wildlife crime Raising public awareness Working with key decision-makers to strengthen policy and legislation Strengthening protected area management through education and training   Combating wildlife crime ENV’s Wildlife Crime Unit (WCU) was established in 2005 to facilitate and motivate public involvement in efforts to combat wildlife trade, and to improve the effectiveness of front line law enforcement agencies. The WCU administers a public toll-free national hotline for reporting wildlife crimes. Information reported through the hotline is passed on to the appropriate authorities. ENV then works closely with law enforcement agencies, tracking each case through to conclusion, and documenting the results on ENV’s Wildlife Crime Database. The WCU strives to achieve a successful outcome for each case, helping coordinate placement of animals, providing advice to the authorities, and encouraging bold action that would serve to deter future crime. In addition, the WCU works directly with violators to secure voluntary compliance, and runs a growing national network of volunteers who assist with monitoring and surveying urban centers and wildlife trade hotspots throughout Vietnam.  The WCU has documented more than 4,500 wildlife crime cases as of November 2012..   In 2008, ENV initiated a field investigation program working closely with law enforcement agencies conducting investigations on priority species groups including bears, tigers, rhino horn trade, and ivory trade.    Promoting Awareness and Public Action ENV’s public awareness campaigns aim to reduce consumption of wildlife by influencing public attitudes and encouraging the public to become actively involved in wildlife protection.   ENV uses a variety of tools to raise awareness about the wildlife trade including television, radio, and newspapers, as well as advertising on buses, billboards and hosting high profile events. ENV also works closely with the media to increase and sustain the coverage of wildlife trade issues in Vietnam’s press. Our Mobile Wildlife Awareness team tours the country undertaking awareness activities to deliver messages directly to stakeholder groups, ranging from university students and residents of communities bordering protected areas to customs police and provincial government leaders.
