NINH BÌNH — As many as 58 animals of eight species, including civet, king cobra, keeled box turtle, crested bird, cuckoo, yellow-billed starling, red-breasted parakeet, and Japanese zosterops, along with some cobras, were released back to Cúc Phương National Park on Saturday.

The activity was organised by the management board of the Cúc Phương National Park and the Hà Nội Wildlife Rescue Centre (HWRC) of the Hà Nội Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

These animals are all exhibits that have been rescued in illicit wildlife trading cases or voluntarily handed over by organisations or individuals.

Chu Phú Mỹ, Director of the Hà Nội Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said his agency had effectively cooperated in nature conservation with the management board of the Cúc Phương National Park - the unit that has great achievements in wildlife conservation and environmental education.

According to a representative of the Centre for Rescue, Conservation and Development of Creatures of the Cúc Phương National Park, this was the second time in the past two years the two units have collaborated with each other to release a large number of wild animals into the Cúc Phương primaeval forest. — VNS
