Hanoi (VNA) – Despite effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ration of response of authorities nationwide to wildlife-related violations reported by people reached 97.6 percent of the total, according to a report released by Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV) on October 7.

According to the report, which focuses on assessing the efficiency of handling wildlife violations reported by people in 2020, the above-mentioned rate is 13.6 percent higher than the rate of 2019.

The rate of successful settlement of violation cases related to wildlife in general and live wild animals in 2020 is equivalent to the 2019 results.

The central city of Da Nang and the southern province of Binh Duong are the two leading localities nationwide in handling violations reported by people, rescuing 125 endangered, precious and rare wild animals. Last year, these localities were also among the five localities reporting the best results in this work.

Ten  localities with the highest rate of response to reports of wildlife violations from people are Binh Duong, Da Nang, Ha Tinh, Nghe An, Thanh Hoa, Kien Giang, Hai Phong, Binh Phuoc, Gia Lai and Ho Chi Minh City.

Localities with the highest efficiency in handling violations related to live wild animal are Dak Lak, Binh Duong, Da Nang, Lam Dong and Dong Nai.

Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are the two localities that have recorded the highest numbers of wildlife violations reported by people.

HCM City’s authorities handled 99.7 percent of the total 309 violations, the report said.

However, the efficiency of handling violations in Hanoi and HCM City still remained low.

Deputy Director of ENV Bui Thi Ha highlighted the important role played by the community in the work, saying that its support effectively contributes to preventing and eliminating illegal wildlife trade and transport in the country. 

ENV expects the average ration of successful settlement of wildlife-related violations reported by the public to reach at least 50 percent of the total in 2021./.
