Owston Civet awareness campaign

As well as pangolins, the Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Program (CPCP, now known as Save Vietnam’s Wildlife, SVW) also work with other small carnivores, one of which is the Owston Civet. Like other terrestrail animals they suffer from the indscriminate snare trapping used by hunters. CPCP has been involved in the Owston’s Civet Breeding Program for many years in conjunction with Newquay Zoo.

One of the biggest problems is that people are not able to identify this species and do not know much about it. In order to try and tackle this SVW has produced a calander in Vietnamese that will be distributed among Forest Protection Department rangers. It is packed full of photographs and information to increase awareness. Calanders will be delivered personally and accompanied with presentations to the departments in the protected areas within the Owstons’ range.

Please help in the production of these calanders and donate to the cause-the deadline is the end of the month.
