Change begins at home. Even when it’s about topics like biodiversity. I talked to Neahga from the Cat Ba Langur Conservation project in Vietnam and I asked him:
- Are poachers always the bad guys and why do you work together with the local community to change the mindset about wildlife trade in Vietnam?
- What is my responsibilty as a traveler?
- Why is biodiversity so important?
Change begins in your backyard and involves action
Protecting Biodiversity on Cat Ba Island in Vietnam – this is what Neahga Leonard does. He joins me for a talk on the essential role of biodiversity and their work to save the Cat Ba Langur on the Archipelago. He shares interesting insights why poachers aren’t always the bad guys and how they work together with the local community to change the mindset about wildlife trade in Vietnam.
You will learn about your responsibility and power as a traveler to change the places you are going to explore. We talk about volunteering, why education in the key factor that takes time and how effective conservation starts at home. Biodiversity is the money in the bank and we are about to lose most of it. Tune in for some real talk on climate change and how we can turn things around – together.
