Update: July, 23/2014 - 09:48

QUANG NAM (VNS) — Camera traps installed by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) recorded another Asiatic black bear (Ursus Thibetanus) in the central province last month, the WWF's communications department said yesterday.

The discovery of the Asiatic black bear, which is listed by IUCN in its Red list of endangered species, is believed to be an important indicator of conservation efforts on the ground to improve the quality of forests, ranked as one of the world's rich biodiversity spots.

The Asiatic black bear was captured on WWF's camera trap for the second time since December 2012, when a number of camera traps had determined the presence of important animal species. . — VNS
