HCM CITY (VNS)— Nearly 100 people paraded on motorbikes and other vehicles through the main streets of Duong Dong town in Phu Quoc Island carrying banners calling for the protection of the dugong and other endangered marine creatures.

The parade was organised by the Phu Quoc Marine Reserve and non-profit organisation Wildlife At Risk for their "Conservation of Dugong and Biodiversity of Phu Quoc and Tho Chu Islands" programme.

The programme aims to educate local residents about the conservation of the large mammal and other endangered marine creatures and the islands' marine bio-diversity. — VNS
