New technology to combat illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam

HANOI, May 11, 2015 – WildScan, an endangered species identification and response mobile phone application, was launched in Vietnam today to provide local law enforcement officials with an effective tool to combat wildlife trafficking.

WildScan was first launched in Thailand last year, but the new availability of the application in Vietnamese language and its upgrade to include many additional species and information related to Vietnam, will support ongoing efforts to tackle the illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam.
