Education for Nature Vietnam
Green Forest No. 28 - Priceless gifts from nature
October 1, 2008 - Education for Nature – Vietnam (ENV) has just released the 28th issue of the popular student nature magazine, Green Forest. In this latest issue, student readers have the opportunity to learn about green energy and how the power of sun and wind can provide unlimited and environmentally-friendly sources of energy. Featured wildlife species include the fabulous dugong of Phu Quoc and the scaly pangolin.
As customary in each issue of Green Forest, students from around the country share their ideas in the student forum, “I wish I could” about what they would do to protect nature and the environment if they were a government minister.
New in this issue is a small grant program for students called the “Green Warrior” grants. Under this new program, students can apply for Green Warrior grants to address environmental issues in their own communities.
Readers can also explore the secrets of beautiful Bai Tu Long National Park or join Ranger Bear on an investigation of bear farms in Quang Ninh province.
As always, students have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas about environmental protection with other readers through stories, poems, or letters mailed to ENV.
Green Forest is distributed free to participating schools and community awareness programs throughout Vietnam.
ENV wishes to thank the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and our “Go Green” partner, Toyota Motor Vietnam for supporting this important educational resource. ENV would also like to thank our friends, supporters, and readers who continue to make valuable contributions to the Green Forest.
