Summary

Since 2000, ENV has spearheaded efforts to end Vietnam's illegal wildlife trade by employing courageous women to work at the forefront of the battle, strengthening wildlife protection laws, fortifying law enforcement response to wildlife crime, bringing wildlife criminals to justice, and engaging the public to reduce demand while increasing public reports of wildlife. At ENV, 30 bold and brave women combat wildlife trafficking in Vietnam on a daily basis, handling almost 3,000 cases a year.

Challenge

Vietnam is a major player in the global illegal wildlife trade, the 4th largest black-market industry after humans, drugs, and weapons. Wildlife trafficking destroys our Earth, pushes endangered species to extinction, and threatens public health on a globally deadly scale. In Vietnam, limited capacity within law enforcement, consumer demand for wildlife, and widespread corruption all present challenges, but have not prevented the women of ENV from fighting every day to stop the wildlife trade.

Solution

The all-women Wildlife Crime Unit pushes law enforcement to confiscate wildlife and arrest criminals after receiving public reports, and helps police take down major wildlife trafficking networks through investigation. Then, ENV's all-women legal team works to prosecute criminals while drafting new wildlife protection laws. Simultaneously, ENV's female Director of Operations orchestrates nationwide campaigns to mobilize public action in reporting wildlife crime and reducing consumer demand.

Long-Term Impact

ENV has tackled >19,000 wildlife crime cases, receiving 10 new cases a day. In 2020 alone, the female-led team facilitated the rescue of 1,132 live wild animals and the arrest and imprisonment of multiple wildlife criminals. ENV also contributed to the content of Prime Minister Directive 29 and began talks on a new law to regulate wildlife facilities, while wildlife awareness messages were broadcast on 60 TV channels, 648 radio ads, and 780 news articles and reached 17 million on social media.
