Vo Quy

Vo Quy, a world renowned conservationist, was the architect of the National Conservation Strategy that mobilised the Vietnamese people to plant at least 160,000 hectares of trees per year to make up for the loss of some 2.2 million hectares of forest and farmland during the war.

He was awarded the World Wildlife Foundation Gold Medal for his outstanding leadership in pioneering environmental conservation and education in IndoChina. Quy has also spearheaded the rehabilitation of the habitat of the Sarus Crane in IndoChina where it was previously thought to be extinct.
