Education and Awareness
EAST is working to find solutions to the problems of the illegal wildlife trade. Education and awareness is a vital part of this conservation work, as it focuses on stopping this problem at its core.
Our education programme works with both local and international communities, raising awareness about how we all influence, and can therefore stop, the illegal trade in endangered primates.
School Visits to Dao Tien
We welcome school visits to Dao Tien Endangered Primate Species Centre. We are situated within Cat Tien National Park; an ideal location for students to get back to nature and see first-hand Vietnam's unique wildlife. A visit to Dao Tien compliments this by showing how rehabilitation centres work and why they are so important.
School visits are fully guided by a member of our education team and are available in English or Vietnamese.
A TYPICAL SCHOOL VISIT INCLUDES:
- A short and beautiful boat ride to Dao Tien Island from Cat Tien National Park headquarters.
- A presentation about Dao Tien Endangered Primate Species Centre. Including details of individual animals at the centre and the stories of their journey back to the wild.
- A fully guided tour of Dao Tien to see how the primates are being rehabilitated for release back to the wild where they belong.
- Tailored activities (if booked in advance).
Our education team can also come to your school or class prior to, or as a follow up from, your visit to the centre with a presentation and activity to compliment your visit.
All school visits to Dao Tien must be booked in advance and are subject to an admission fee. Please contact us
for more information and advice on organising a visit.
Please note that Dao Tien is a rehabilitation centre and the majority of animals at the centre are preparing for release back into the wild. For this reason human contact is strictly limited so, whilst viewing of the animals is possible, there is no public interaction with any of the animals at the centre.
