With no records in the wild since 2000, the Edwards’s Pheasant (Lophura edwardsii) is thought to be on the brink of extinction. It’s salvation could lay in the hands of captive specimens and the availability of suitable habitat to release them into. Khe Nuoc Trong, in the Annamite mountains of North-Central Vietnam could be one such site.
WLT has been working with Vietnamese NGO, Viet Nature Conservation Centre (VNCC) since 2013 to protect Khe Nuoc Trong. VNCC have since launched an awareness raising campaign of the plight of the Edward’s Pheasant and are developing plans for its release back into the wild.
Sales of the t-shirt will support VNCC’s campaign and to raise awareness of the Edwards’s Pheasant in the UK.”
*Please note, the t-shirts run small.*
