USAID Saving Species works toward the accomplishment of three objectives in Vietnam, which are: raising public awareness against the consumption of wildlife products, strengthening wildlife law enforcement and prosecution, and improving the legal framework for wildlife crime.
The project focuses on three species groups: African rhinos, African and Asian elephants, and pangolins.
To assist the government of Vietnam in saving endangered wildlifes, the USAID Saving Species project has established an Activity Fund tasked with supporting partnering organizations for approved projects.
The proposed activity must be related to USAID Saving Species three key objectives, and be conducted in coordination with a relevant governmental agency. A letter of support/recommendation from the aforementioned agency is required.
