Global Conservation Force has continued to tackle wildlife demand and trafficking issues with educational courses in the demand counties. One of those core projects is our Wild Warriors project, in partnership with Wildhand, in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Our work with the Wild Warriors program in Vietnam promises a new perspective on wildlife. Lauren lee, GCF Education Coordinator, a mentor of these courses visited the Wildhand team at the beginning of March 2019 for the start of the program. During this visit, the team was on their way to creating their second lesson for the students on bears and bear bile-a hot topic that can be found in the areas surrounding the school. We focus on using education as a tool for combating human-wildlife issues like trafficking. Other local NGOs like Animals Asia have also provided more educational materials and resources like synthetic botanic bear bile. The students are always eager to learn in these interactive courses and prove that there is still hope for change!
With the hope of inspiring, educating, and empowering the next generation, Global Conservation Force is proud to be the funding organization and mentors of these courses. The program is designed to target the most serious wildlife issues in the area and it includes visiting the local national park.
Education coordinator, Lauren lee, continues to help develop and mentor this project as the team prepares for the 2020 project launch. This year, the program launch is set for Sept 21, 2020. Stay tuned for photos, videos, and updates, on this important GCF program!
