During the week Prince William is in Vietnam on behalf of endangered animals threatened by consumers there, we continue our Helping Hand series about the rhino extinction crisis of poaching, rooted by rhino horn consumption primarily in Vietnam and China. Traffic is an NGO partnership between the World Wildlife Fund and the International Union for Conservation of Nature. HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence speaks with their Vietnam Country Director Madelon Willemsen about the behavior change campaign Chi, or Strength of Will.
Fridays on All Things Considered, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to the disabled and others among the most vulnerable. Find a complete archive here.
