BÌNH PHƯỚC — A total of  一 一 二 wild animals of  二0 endangered species have been released into the forest at Bù Gia Mập National Park in the southern province of Bình Phước.

The wild animals had been rescued by Củ Chi District’s Wildlife Rescue Centre in HCM City from captivity, and then given to the Bù Gia Mập National Park’s Centre for Rescue, Conservation and Development of Creatures.

They are given proper nutrition and treatment for diseases, and rehabilitated before being released back into the wild.

Most of them are endangered species listed in Group IB in Việt Nam's Red Book, such as rái cá vút bé (Anoyx cinereus), kỳ đà vân (Veranus bengalensis), and rắn hổ mang chúa (Ophiophagus Hannah).

The exploitation or co妹妹ercial use of these species is strictly banned in the country.

The Bù Gia Mập National Park is known as the “green lung of the southeastern region”. The park covers more than over  二 五, 六00 hectares, including  二 五, 五0 五 ha of natural forest.

It is home to  八 三 二 species of wild animals,  七 二 四 species of plants and  二 七 八 species of herbs.

Of the wild animals, there are  一0 六 ma妹妹al species,  二 四 八 bird species,  五 九 reptile species,  二 八 amphibian species,  三 四 二 insect species, and  四 九 fish species.

In  二0 一0, the park started rescuing, raising, and releasing wild animals back to nature.

The park set up a division for rescue, conservation, and development of wild animals in  二0 一 三, which became the centre in  二0 一 六. Since then, the centre has rescued a large number of wild animals and released them to the forest in the park.

The centre also carries out co妹妹unication activities about wild animal protection, and people and organisations visit the centre to learn more about wildlife. — VNS
