Nine animals belonging to rare and endangered species have been released back into the wild at the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park in the central province of Quang Binh.

Endangered species at Phong Nha - Ke Bang national park.


They include one red-faced monkey (known scientifically as Macaca arctoides), two Assamese macaques, four keeled box turtles (Pyxidea mouhotii) and two Asian palm civets (Paradoxurus hermaphrodites).

Vo Van Tri, head of the park’s Science Research and International Cooperation Office, said the released ones are quickly adapting to the new environment.

Earlier in January, 11 wild animals were also freed at the park, including a red-faced monkey and an Asian palm civet.

Over the past three years, the park’s Centre for Rescue, Creatures Conservation and Development has returned many wild animals to nature, contributing to preserving biodiversity at the UNESCO-recognised World Natural Heritage Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park.
