According to statistics of the Center for Nature Education, Vietnam is a transit country and the largest market for wildlife consumption in the world. In 2021 alone, there are 3,703 wildlife violations nationwide, an increase of 800 cases compared to 2020.

Ms. Dang Nguyet Anh – Wildlife Trafficking Program Officer – WWF Vietnam – affirmed that the legal system to protect wildlife species is assessed to be relatively complete and internationally recognized. Price is a big step forward in the legal system. However, there are still inadequacies in the system that still need to be amended and supplemented.

“Wildlife is considered a commodity, once it is considered a commodity, it will be governed by the law of supply and demand. Therefore, we need to affect both the supply side and the demand side. Many campaigns reduce demand, behavior change has been implemented at different scales, but the results have not been as expected and have not had far-reaching effects in society”, Ms. Nguyet Anh added, “We need the persistent and continuous communication activities to create great impacts in society”.

“Earth is the cradle, the armor that protects us all. Wild animals are in a perfectly balanced ecological chain. They have been magically refined, built up, textured. Any impact that distorts, breaks, or destroys can cause a domino effect that causes natural disasters, epidemics and even destruction. Mother Nature is tolerant, Earth can respond. All human needs but can’t satisfy everyone’s greed.. Deforestation, killing animals, eating all rare and precious wild animals, that’s like we’re stabbing ourselves. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow the Earth from future generations. When the ecological chain is broken, epidemics, natural disasters will strike, we will not there is still a chance to correct mistakes, regret or grieve, regret”, journalist Do Doan Hoang’s urgent appeal about deforestation and wildlife hunting in Vietnam today.
