HCM CITY (VNS) — Nearly 40 university students from HCM City, Ha Noi, Can Tho and Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province attended the Wildlife Summer Camp 2015 which ended yesterday (June 22) at Wildlife At Risk's (WAR) Hon Me Wildlife Rescue Station.

The camp is an annual programme, launched by WAR in June 2013, that calls on youth to conserve and protect wildlife.

It raises awareness and skills about conservation, and creates opportunities for students to contribute to wildlife conservation.

The students worked with WAR staff to prepare food for rescued wildlife, including the yellow-cheeked crested gibbon, loris, moon bear and Siamese crocodile.

They also painted enclosures, cleared grass and grew over 100 wildlife food plants including banana and papaya.

They also learned skills related to wildlife conservation jobs, such as surveying in the forest, setting up a camera trap, taking photos and creating a video clip about wildlife protection. — VNS
