More than 1,530 rare baby sea turtles belonging to several species have been released into the sea in Núi Chúa National Park in the central coastal province of Ninh Thuận this year.
Rare sea turtles are in danger of dying out but a project has started that aims to save them. Researchers have taken eggs from Côn Đảo Island in Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province to Chàm Island in the south central province of Quảng Nam.
A project aimed at saving rare sea turtles on Chàm Island has achieved the added bonus of teaching residents the importance of caring for the environment and in turn boosted tourism. Bùi Hoài Nam reports.
