The Vinpearl Safari Park on Phu Quoc Island has just received 200 endangered animals of different species from various bio-geographic regions in the world, the Sai Gon Giai Phong (Liberated Saigon) newspaper reported.

The rare animals include white antelopes (addax), black-and-white ruffed lemurs (Varecia variegata), ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) and giraffes.

The Conservation Park, part of the Vinpearl Resort project in Bai Dai (Long Beach) in Phu Quoc Island district in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang is scheduled to be put into operation on December 24, making it the first wild zoo in Vietnam.

It consists of two main parts: the Open Zoo and the Safari Park, accommodating more than 2,000 domestic and foreign animals of 140 species, and some 400 species of flora.

So far, three flights have been deployed to transfer rare animals from the US, Europe and South Africa to the park.

There will be five more flights to be carried out until the inauguration of the facility.-VNA
