In January, Education for Nature-Vietnam, a partner of the USAID-funded Asia’s Regional Response to Endangered Species Trafficking Program (ARREST), continued to hang banners at high-traffic markets encouraging the public to refrain from consuming wildlife. The banners are now displayed at nearly 30 markets in the country’s larger cities of Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Da Nang. The campaign, which aims to raise awareness among both customers and shop owners, features photos on the banners showing animals commonly exploited in Vietnam including tigers, bears and rhinos. The banners also advertise ENV’s wildlife crime hotline number and encourage people to report wildlife crime.
