Letter from Nguyen Thi Thu Hien
Endagered Primate Rescue Center, Viet Nam
24 March, 2011
First of all I would like to thank you for the Lee Houts Scholarship for the Enrichment & Training Workshop in Philippines from 20-24 March, 2011. During this workshop, the lessons I received were very valuable not only for me but also for my facility and the wildlife in Viet Nam.
The lessons were amazing. I learnt how to solve out the problem with animal behaviour, as well as how to make enrichment and assess and evaluate them. The way you and your colleague gave the lesson to us was also very clear and understandable. I was really impressed by the lesson you gave on how to collect simple data to reach the goals for enrichment and how to train different animals to draw the animal's blood and treated their injury without using any anesthetic.
With what I have gained in this workshop, I hope to be able to solve many problems and questions in my job much better.
Your continuous support is much appreciated and we hope that we would have the opportunity to attend other learning workshops which will improve the welfare of the primates at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center in Cuc Phuong, Viet Nam.
Once again, thank you!
