HA NOI (VNS) — Education for Nature Viet Nam (ENV) has launched a painting contest to raise awareness about protecting wild animals.
Participants are encouraged to ask others to look after wild animals and ask people not to use poached animal products.
Many Vietnamese species, such as elephants, pangolins and tigers are under threat of extinction from poaching – and the last Vietnamese rhinocerous was killed only a few years ago.
Entries should be sent to the ENV before March 1. Entrants should not be professional painters.
Prizes will be divided into categories for children and adults and will be worth a total of VND10 million (US$500) each. — VNS
