Volunteering at Save Vietnams Wildlife was an opportunity to meet first hand with the magical and mythical pangolin. I had learnt of their sad status of critically endangered a few years ago and had been watching with keen interest, conservation attempts in order to save these exquisite creatures.
Volunteering at SVW was such a fantastic experience. It was a real privilege to meet the pangolin, not to mention the wonderful and dedicated staff who made me feel so welcome.
In thinking back over the two weeks I recently spent as a volunteer with Save Vietnam's Wildlife in Cuc Phuong National Forest in July-August 2015, I find myself feeling a sense of pleasure and satisfaction.
