CÀ MAU — Nearly 1.5ha of forest trees in Cà Mau National Park in the southernmost province of Cà Mau have reportedly died since late January. Relevant agencies have not detected causes of the tree death.

Dying trees were found both in the areas under the management of the Cà Mau National Park and the forest area managed by two local families.

Last week, the provincial People’s Committee asked the park manager to tighten observation of the dying trees and to take measures to protect other trees.

The province’s agriculture department is asked to inspect and punish violations that could cause the tree death, for example, families taking improper care, intentionally causing floods or water pollution that destroy the trees.

Located in Đất Mũi Commune, Cape Cà Mau National Park covers over 41,800ha, including 26,600ha of coastal areas and 15,200ha of inland areas.

It is home to 200 animal species and more than 60 plants, including cajeput, mangrove, mam and water coconut trees. Huge flocks of birds are protected in bird sanctuaries there. — VNS
