A special exhibition was opened yesterday in Eo Xoai Eco-Tourism Park in Phu Quoc Island in the Mekong delta province of Kien Giang, displaying more than 40 photos of rare animals rescued by Wildlife at Risk Organization.
The exhibition named “Lucky Wildlife” showed photos of rare animals such as leopards, golden-cheeked gibbons, gray-shanked douc langur, Indochinese lutung and Asian black bear which have been rescued by the Wildlife at Risk Organization (WAR).
More than 60 individual animals had been rescued from the hands of poachers and released back into the wild. Attached to each photo is a story of the fate of the animal and how rare they are.
Visitors are moved at the stories of fate of the animals and rescuing them as well as people feel happy at knowing that the animals were released to the wild or live peacefully in WAR-managed rescue stations afterwards.
Visitors are asked to pledge not to consume rare wildlife.
The exhibition will last to May 15, 2015.
The exhibition was opened by the Wildlife at Risk Organization (WAR) and Eo Xoai Eco-Tourism Park.
