Thanh Hoa works to conserve endangered animals, plants

VietNamNet Bridge – The central province of Thanh Hoa has decided to dole out close to VND 1.9 billion to preserve endangered animals and plants in its nature reserves from now until 2010.

Of the funding, over VND 591 million will be spent on the conservation of [gaur] wild bulls (Bos gaurus) in the Bu Hu Nature Reserve and more than VND 592 million on the protection of a white-rumped langur (Trachypithecus delacouri) in the Pu Luong Nature Reserve.

The remaining sum will be used to preserve two species of plants, the pomu (Forkienia hodginsii) and the samu (Cunninghamia lanceolata) both in the Xuan Lien Nature Reserve.
