Save Vietnam’s Wildlife is a Vietnamese non-profit organisation dedicated to wildlife conservation, animal rescue and wildlife-related education.
Founded in 2014 and based in Ninh Bình, Save Vietnam’s Wildlife works with government agencies to rescue animals that have been confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade. The organisation works to combat illegal poaching, advocates for law improvement and site protection, and works with local communities providing educational outreach. It also works on conservation research and breeding for engendered animals including the Chinese pangolin and the Owston’s civet.
