Release of primates in Bach Ma National Park.

Bach Ma National ParkViet NamAsia, Education, Mammals, Primates14 Aug 2000

Recent estimates indicate that Bach Ma National Park is home to some 130 mammal species, some new to science and others known to be threatened. Of 25 primate species thought to exist in Vietnam, at least 10 species and sub-species are found in Bach Ma, and all of these are listed by the IUCN as threatened. Wildlife hunting, trading and trafficking are growing problems in the area.

Research on the distribution status of the primate population in the Park is vital to allow development of a conservation plan to offer protection against such illegal operations.

This project will use various methods to assess the primate populations in the Park, including interviewing hunters and local communities, and will assist the forest guard staff with patrols. Once the key areas have been identified, the project will propose additional protection measures.
