“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Neil Armstrong

Over the coming months, Active for Animals will add ideas to the One Small Step project page. These will be activities to help you take your first step in to conservation activities.

Become A Rhino Ambassador

As you may know, the demand for rhino horn in Vietnam is high and this desire in Vietnam is driving rhino poaching. Wherever you are in the world, you can become a Rhino Ambassador and one of the easiest and most effective ways of showing your support for rhinos is to send a letter to your local Vietnamese Embassy asking for their help to close down the trade.

To help Active for Animals has done two things. The first is to provide you a link to the contact details of all the Vietnamese Embassies Worldwide. The list provides the address and phone information. We recommend that you don’t sent an email, as they can be more easily ignored. To stand out, the best thing to do is to send a letter by post. But if you don’t want to send your letter by post, then send an email.

The second thing we have done is create three sample letters that you can use, if you are not sure what to write.

Letter 1: Time to Reflect

Letter 2: Let’s All Share

Letter 3: For Future Generations

Don’t worry about only using the term “Dear Ambassador” in your letter, often Embassy websites aren’t updated and the Ambassador has changed; we recommend this universal salutation.

Join forces with your family and friends, or maybe you could get your class or school to also send letters.
