HCM CITY (VNS)— The non-profit organisation Wildlife At Risk (WAR) in coordination with the HCM City Department of Education and Training has published a bilingual comic book Gab's Story to educate young students about wildlife protection in Viet Nam.

The story in Vietnamese and English is based on facts about illegal poaching, trading and consumption of endangered wildlife in Viet Nam. It is about a journey of a yellow-cheeked crested gibbon named Gab.

Gab is hunted by poachers and suffers great misery when the gibbon is held in captivity and witnesses other endangered wildlife being traded and killed. Gab is finally rescued and released back to the wild.

The book's author, Do Thi Thanh Huyen, who is WAR's wildlife education manager, said the book was dedicated to all children in hopes they will "say no" to illegal wildlife products.

The book has been distributed to secondary school students in HCM City and is available at http://wildlifeatrisk.org/new/public/books. — VNS
