NGUYEN VAN THAI

Executive Director

NGUYEN VAN THAI

Thai founded Save Vietnam’s Wildlife in 2014 after nearly a decade fighting for wildlife conservation in Vietnam.

In 2005 he joined the Asian Pangolin Conservation Program based in Cuc Phuong National Park: first as volunteer and then as program coordinator. After success in rescuing and rehabilitating pangolins, Thai was then responsible for all activities related to the captive management of carnivores and pangolins as the captive manager at CPCP. Thai has carried out many research projects both in captivity and in the wild, resulting in him co-authoring many published papers in international scientific journals.

He was chosen as one of 40 wildlife heroes in the Wildlife Heroes book, published in the United States in 2012 and in 2016 he was awarded the prestigious Future for Nature Award.

He is also Captive Ecology Vice-Chair of the IUCN SSC Pangolin Specialist Group. Thai’s success has stemmed from his devotion to threatened species backed by solid scientific research.

Thai has a Master of Science (Environmental Science) and Graduate Diploma in Environmental Management and Development from the Australian National University, and a Graduate Certificate in Durrell Endangered Species Management from the University of Kent and Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.
