A photo at the exhibition
Images of pangolin were showcased with different titles as Danger, Error, Effort and Company.
With the topic of Light, the exhibition displays lively photos of pangolin in wildlife. Meanwhile, the “Dark” topic showed images of pangolin smuggling, poaching or food from pangolin meat.
As part of the exhibition, volunteers from the Save Vietnam’s Wildlife will talk about the current situation of pangolin as well as solutions to protecting the endangered species.
The animal population is now in a small number due to poaching and growing demand of pangolin for meat and medical materials.
At present, Vietnam is ranked the 2nd in the world in poaching pangolin.
