“I would like to extend my grateful appreciation to the team at Wilderness Foundation Africa and by extension, their partners, for giving me this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit South Africa and partake in one of South Africa's most famous wilderness trails. This would give me the chance to experience Africa's wilderness in the fullest and to understand the challenges and threats facing the rhinos. I hope that I am able to share this experience with everyone and persuade people to act against the illegal rhino horn,” he added.
“I believe that when Duc Tuan is back from the trail in South Africa, he can share his experience with his friends and family, which will encourage more students to join us to speak up against rhino poaching,” Ms Thu Huynh shared.
Besides the trip to South Africa, Duc Tuan will join the other 13 senior winners to become the Wild Rhino Youth Ambassador, working directly with the Wilderness Foundation Africa team in Vietnam to continue raising awareness and encourage people to stop using rhino horn.
