Our research comprises in-situ and ex-situ species projects. We also undertake social research to understand the motivations and social conditions of those who consume illegal wildlife products and who hunts and trades in wildlife.
There is a lack of understanding of the requirements of threatened species, including the pangolins and small carnivores distributed in our selected stronghold Pu Mat National Park and in captivity. Therefore, conducting conservation research will improve our understanding of the conservation needs of threatened species and helps to monitor the successes of our conservation activities.
We have three research themes: field research, social research and captive research. We are committed to raising the capacity of Vietnamese conservation researchers. All our research teams include a strong core of Vietnamese researchers.
