GreenViet’s name in Vietnamese means “Green VietNam” Biodiversity Conservation Center. GreenViet was established in October 2012 and has operated in the field of Biodiversity Conservation in the Central and Central Highlands regions.

Scope of work

History of establishment

The idea of establishing an NGO called GreenViet was originally suggested by Dr. Ha Thang Long and a young research team working on biodiversity research and conservation in Kon Ka Kinh National Park, Gia Lai province in 2006. The founders wished to build GreenViet Center so that enthusiastic people sharing the same desire to learn, research and disseminate biodiversity values to the Vietnamese community could gather. Together they hoped to improve the local community‘s understanding, promote action in biodiversity conservation and environmentally friendly behavior, and sustainable use of biodiversity resources in Vietnam.

The beginning

GreenViet’s original staff included only 4 people – Dr. Ha Thang Long, Tran Huu Vy, Nguyen Thi Tinh, and Lanh Tuan Bao, who were participating in the research program on ecological behavior of grey-shanked Douc Langurs in Kon Ka Kinh National Park, Gia Lai. Their initial ideas became clearer and clearer during their group’s field trips carried out from 2006 to 2008.


In September 2011, the activities laying the foundation for the NGO construction process were organized; such as orientation discussions, building networks, and promoting the establishment procedure of the center. On October 4th, 2012, GreenViet Center was officially established under the Decision No. 44 / QD-LHH of the Union of Science and Technology Associations of Da Nang city (called GreenViet for short). Da Nang City Department of Science and Technology issued operating license No. 14 on October 23rd, 2012.
