On September the 7th, founder and director of Association Anoulak Camille Coudrat visited our partners at Mandai Wildlife Reserves and Mandai Nature. Camille gave a talk to Mandai Nature Reserves and Mandai Nature teams: a nice way to link the conservation work of zoological parks and on-the-ground conservation work by organizations such as Association Anoulak.
Some 40 team members of the Mandai Wildlife Reserves and Mandai Nature attended the conference with very engaging questions to better understand Association Anoulak’s work in Laos.
Mandai Wildlife Reserve is a unique wildlife and nature destination in Singapore that is home to world-renown wildlife parks which connect visitors to the fascinating world of wildlife. Mandai Wildlife Reserve also provides funding and in-kind support to Mandai Nature for conservation work across Southeast Asia.
Mandai Nature delivers impact by supporting local and regional organisations on the ground through funding, development of capacity and skills, and by linking local and global agendas. Mandai Nature aims to advance efforts for nature conservation in Asia, with a focus on protecting threatened species from extinction, protecting and restoring ecosystems, driving nature-based solutions to mitigate climate change, and creating benefits for local communities. Mandai Nature has long been a supporter of Association Anoulak. We are very grateful for their long-term financial support, as well as their ever uplifting and compassionate encouragements!
This visit to Singapore also gave us the opportunity to connect or reconnect with friends and colleagues from the National University of Laos, The Jane Goodall Institute Singapore, The Singapore Botanical Garden.
