HAPPY AWARE WEEK VIETNAM

TIUN® is the first mermaid school in the world to combine with PADI® scuba diving to train young mermaids in environmental activities and to rescue animals and nature. In response to the global movement – AWARE week, we have organized the programs of collecting garbage on Mui Ne beach in 2018 and scuba diving to collect garbage on Hon Mun Island, Nha Trang in 2019. TIUN mermaid community will always do our best to support Project Aware with the hope that the marine environment and children's future will be better. Please take a look at TIUN's two years of companion in AWARE week.

ENDANGERED ELONGATED TORTOISES RESCUED

Last week two endangered elongated tortoises (Indotestudo elongata) were brought into the TIUN Wildlife Rescue by a concerned local who had ‘found’ them close to his home in area populated by many people, he feared that someone would catch them and eat them. All two little tortoises seem in good health. For now these little guys are safe and are currently settling into life at Nam Cat Tien National Park meeting other rescued and displaced elongated tortoises in a large open field enclosure. In the future we hope to release these guys back to the wild in a protected area far away from the pressures of man.



The elongated Tortoise is listed as Endangered by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, it is under extreme pressure across most of its range, largely due to it being widely harvested and sold on the Asian food markets. Disregard for international conservation laws are apparent, with the trade in tortoises brisk, highly developed, and probably ignored by many border guards, custo…

OUR BIGGEST HAIRY NOSED OTTER RESCUE EVER

We have just successfully rescued 4 Hairy-Nosed Otter individuals in Vietnam and China border. They were bought from illegal trade during the night of December 12th. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Merman Tiun. Never have we been taking care of so many baby hairy-nosed otters in our quarantine enclosures.

If you're a real life mermaid at TIUN, the last thing you probably expect to help wild animals. But this was exactly what merman Tiun found adorable baby otters that was pretty exhausted. These otters was calling for their mom.



Because otters sleep in a pile with their siblings right up until I take them home. They get a sense of security from sleeping on top of each other. This is how it is in the womb: warm, quiet and peaceful. Taking them away from their mother and littermates is traumatic. Even when you see a happy, goofy otter playfully engaging with their new family, keep in mind that they are away from the only home they have ever known, in a completely new enviro…

3 WAYS YOU CAN HELP OUR COASTAL SEAS

Where land meets sea is a rich community of plants and animals—all vital to the health of our planet ... and us. Coastal seas make up only 10% of our oceans but are home to over 90% of all marine species. And seafood is the major protein source for roughly 1.5 billion people.

The Coastal Seas episode of Our Planet, created in collaboration with WWFand now streaming on Netflix, reveals that development and climate change have negatively impacted these areas. We've lost half of all coral reefs and mangroves, and stand to lose even more.

Taking better care of our seas is something we must do together.WWF is working to expand mangrove cover, save coral reefs, improve fishing practices, and support community-led conservation in important coastal regions. Explore how you can do your part to protect our coastal seas.
