Act now to save thousands of lives
Your donation today will help protect the animals of Vietnam’s rainforests in PNKB (Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park). Every penny will be directly restricted to defending this area, and will be multiplied a whopping 10 times by an incredibly generous donor.
The area is home to threatened species like gibbons, slow lorises and potentially the incredibly rare Sunda pangolin. We need to raise £225,000 (which will be multiplied to £2.25 million) to adequately protect it from the impending threats.
How will that money be spent? Equipping rangers. On the “front-line” of the conservation battle, things that make a difference are very down to earth indeed. They include:
Without these items, the outlook for the forest and its creatures is grim, so your generosity – this time multiplied – will make all the difference.
We are at a critical point in Vietnam – we have a window of maybe 10-15 years in which to avert a mass primate extinction, the likes of which has never been seen in human history.
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has been working there for over 20 years, and in this time has been at the forefront of saving the unique and gravely threatened wildlife, much of which is teetering on the verge of global extinction.
Over the last two decades our work has ranged from supporting ecotourism initiatives, supporting better protected area management and piloting REDD+ and Payment for Ecosystem Services approaches to sustainable management.
We are best known, however, for our leading role in protecting the country’s critically endangered primates. We support monitoring of primate populations, and education initiatives to engage people in conservation, as well as driving better management, patrolling and enforcement within protected areas designated for primate conservation. The latter includes the use of highly effective community conservation teams.
More broadly, we are working with our government partners to improve the planning and operations of larger, national protected areas. This includes boosting the technical capacity of park authorities as well as improving monitoring of biodiversity and putting in place more effective law enforcement within the protected areas. We also work with communities surrounding these high-priority sites to develop improved and sustainable livelihoods.
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s oldest conservation charity. Over the last 100 years, we have literally saved species from extinction and even – with the help of our vice-president, Sir David Attenborough – helped bring mountain gorillas back from the brink. We work to protect plants and animals around the globe, and spend 94% of our income on charitable activities.

If the target amount isn’t met then any funds raised will still be allocated solely to our program in Vietnam, helping to protect wildlife.
Any funds raised over £225,000 will be used wherever the need is greatest - in both Vietnam and around the globe
