Many rare and endangered animals have been discovered by conservationists in Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park (Lam Dong) by means of photo traps. At least 21 species, of which 7 are threatened with extinction, have been recorded with vivid images.
This information was officially announced by Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park on June 20.Temporarily detain rare animal traffickers for profitLe Van Huong, Director of Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park, said that since October 2019, Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park has cooperated with the Southern Institute of Ecology and the Leibniz Wildlife Research Institute (Federal Republic of Germany). ), carried out a survey in the form of photo traps on the entire area of the National Park to determine the diversity and richness of animals living here.
Initially, the survey gave encouraging results even though it was only carried out on a part of the NP. The camera traps have captured the moments of many rare and endangered animals appearing in Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park.
Sun bears, civets, and albino porcupines were discovered in Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park.The most valuable finding was the presence of the large gill (Muntiacus vuquangensis). This is a ungulate found only in the Truong Son range, currently classified as Critically Endangered (CR) in the IUCN Red List. Conservationists believe that the giant gill is extinct in most of the forests in its former distribution area in Vietnam.
By capturing images of large gills, scientists believe that Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park is home to the “last viable population” of this animal in Vietnam.
Conservationists have also captured images of the civet (Chrotogale owstoni) at Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park. This small carnivore has a striking coat and is nearing extinction, due to rampant hunting.
Also here, the survey team also recorded many images of sun bears (Helarctos malayanus). Although sun bears are quite common in bear farms in Vietnam, this species is actually very rare in the forests of our country.
According to Mr. Le Van Huong, Director of Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park, the most recent image of a sun bear in the wild was taken at Cat Tien National Park (Lam Dong) nearly 20 years ago. Another surprising discovery of the research team was that it had captured images of albino porcupines.
Although porcupines are relatively common in most protected areas in Vietnam, a single white porcupine is an extremely rare phenomenon. No one has ever heard of albino porcupines in the natural forests of Southeast Asia.
However, the traps have also recorded many animals with serious injuries due to being trapped by hunters. For example, a sun bear carrying a wound to its front paw, possibly caused by a brake line trap, is extremely difficult to walk.
The situation of people entering Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park to set traps and illegally hunt wild animals is becoming a problem, challenging management agencies and directly threatening the lives of forest animals, not only What to do in Bidoup – Nui Ba National Park.
