Vietnam forestry officials given tour

Law enforcement officers from Vietnam’s Forest Protection Department

(FPD) and their Cambodian counterparts on April 7 completed a week-long

study tour of Cambodia’s forests and wildlife.

Organized by World Wildlife Fund Vietnam and PeunPa, a member of the

Wildlife Alliance, and jointly hosted by Cambodia’s Ministry of Forest

and Fisheries and the Ministry of  Environment, the trip aimed to

encourage inter-agency cooperation between the two countries and give

participants firsthand experience of tested methods of wildlife law

enforcement.

“Forest crime in Southeast Asia is a multi-million dollar activity that

is stripping the region of irreplaceable natural heritage to the

enrichment of a limited few,” said Mark E Grindley, WWF Technical

Advisor in central Vietnam.

The trip included visits to the Phnom Tamao wildlife rescue center and Bokor national park. (Cat Barton)
