HISTORY

The Non-Governmental Organization GreenViet derived from an idea of PhD. Ha Thang Long and a group of young researchers who were doing a study on biodiversity conservation in Kon Ka Kinh National Park, Gia Lai Province, 2006.
These founders have a desire that GreenViet will be a place for passionate people who want to find out, research, and spread the value of biodiversity to all Vietnamese people. In order to raise awareness and find out solutions to boost community’s responsibility for preserving wild animals, eco-friendly living, using biodiversity resources sustainably.
