To combat the growing demand for wild animal products in Vietnam, the "Da Nang City says NO to wildlife consumption" campaign recently launched in Da Nang, the third largest city in Vietnam.
With support from the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) through our reinvestment in the Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspot, GreenViet Biodiversity Conservation Center is working to reduce consumption of wildlife and wildlife products in Da Nang by supporting public officials in environmental protection, raising awareness among the public of the issue through the broadcasting of a talk show on local television, and conducting a communications campaign in partnership with Da Nang International Airport and Da Nang taxi companies during the 2014/15 Christmas and Vietnamese new year (Tet) holiday season.

Established in 2000, the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) is a global leader in enabling civil society to participate in and influence the conservation of some of the world's most critical ecosystems. CEPF is a joint initiative of l'Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Conservation International, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Government of Japan, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the World Bank. CEPF is unique among funding mechanisms in that it focuses on high-priority biological areas rather than political boundaries and examines conservation threats on a landscape scale. From this perspective, CEPF seeks to identify and support a regional, rather than a national, approach to achieving conservation outcomes and engages a wide range of public and private institutions to address conservation needs through coordinated regional efforts.
