Saola Greetings, December 2015:  Forests, beauty and gratitude. 

December 2015

With best holiday wishes, and gratitude for your support,
from the Saola Working Group


Pictured here with a Saola is another endangered species in the Saola’s range, Owson’s Civet  (Chrotogale owstoni).  Like Saola, this beautiful animal is a highly distinctive species in its own genus, and likewise is threatened by indiscriminate snaring for the wildlife trade.
Since 2011, with your support, the SWG and our partners have helped to remove more than 100,000 snares from forests in Laos and Vietnam, helping to save much more than Saola.  Thank you, thank you, from all of us in the SWG.
