Cooperation to release more than 80 endangered turtles back to the wild

March 2012 – Wildlife At Risk corporates with Cuc Phuong Turtle Rescue Center released 83 individuals of the Elongated Tortoise, Giant Asian Turtle and Asian Box Turtle species to Lo Go Xa Mat National Park, Tay Ninh Province. These endangered turtles were rescued at Cuc Phuong Turtle Rescue Center in the north before transferring to Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station for a few days before being released back to the wild.

After four days travelling by train from Cuc Phuong Turtle Rescue Center to Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station, these turtles were carefully checked to make sure that they are healthy enough to be released. Fortunately, after three days at Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station, all 83 individuals are able to be released to the wild.

Although Lo Go Xa Mat National Park is about 1,600km away from Cuc Phuong Turtle Rescue Center, it is selected to release the turtles because this is the appropriate habitat of these endangered species.

“This is the first time Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station has cooperated with Cuc Phuong Turtle Rescue Center to save endangered turtles. We are looking forward further cooperations with other rescue stations throughout the country in order to save more endangered wildlife”, said Mr.Lam Le Xuan, Manager of Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station.
