DONG THAP — A rare 5-kg turtle, nearly 50kg of other kinds of turtles and frogs and 550kg of snakes have been released into Tram Chim National Park, a Ramsar site of wetlands of international importance, since early this year.

The turtle (siebenrockiella crassicollis) was caught by a local man who later returned it to the park's management board while the rest of rare animals were bought from traders at local markets by head of Tam Thanh Pagoda Thich Thien Quy and Buddha followers. — VNS
