Environmental heroes celebrated

According to today’s ENV News Release 14/10/15  in Hanoi, Vietnam, the environmental education group Education for Nature Vietnam held their second awards ceremony to honor five law enforcement officers and two journalists who have made exceptional contributions to wildlife protection in Vietnam.

ENV Executive Director and spokesperson Quyen Vu said “We believe that it is very important to promote outstanding contribution by law enforcement authorities who are on the front line in combating wildlife crime.”

Mr. Vu went on to say that journalists like Mr. Hoang who have been working very hard to expose wildlife crime and help increase the public awareness about wildlife protection should be celebrated. “We can’t win this war if we fight alone, we need others to do their parts. We need more good people committing to protect wildlife in Vietnam and we do believe that 70 journalists including 20 TV major stations who were there today have helped deliver our messages to the public.”
