HÀ NỘI — Education for Nature–Việt Nam (ENV) said yesterday it had rescued nine wild animals with assistance from local units after following up on reports from local residents and volunteers.
Among the rescued animals are five sea turtles, three long-tailed monkeys and one loris. All the animals have been released into the wild.
On Tuesday, three sea turtles, weighing up to 70kg, were rescued from a wooden boat located near Chà Và Bridge in the southern Vũng Tàu Province, thanks to a report from a tourist.
On the same day, the ENV’s volunteers, working with local agencies, also rescued two monkeys that had been kept by a household in HCM City’s Tân Phú District.
Two sea turtles weighing a total of 16kg were rescued on Monday, when a restaurant released them to the environment police and Hạ Long forest management centre in the northern Quảng Ninh Province.
Earlier, another monkey and a loris were rescued in the Tây Nguyên (Central Highlands) province of Lâm Đồng and at Cúc Phương National Park last week. — VNS
