The 10 million USD project funded by USAID helps Vietnam combat wildlife trafficking. Its focal species are rhinos, elephants, and pangolins. It also focuses geographically on major urban centers like Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Danang, where target species are consumed, as well as areas where target species are trafficked, including airports, seaports, and specific land borders.
