Vietnam ’s biodiversity is in the trend of vanishing quickly despite the country’s efforts.

Amongst the 882 endangered species that were listed in Vietnam ’s Red Book in 1997, nine species of animals including the Sumatra rhinoceros, the Kouprey bull, tapirs, otter civets, the Japanese eel, several species of carp, spotted deer, estuarine crocodile (crocodylus porosos) and two species of orchids (paphiopadilum) are in danger of extinction.

At present, the number of primeval forests are also falling.

According to experts, the situation is attributed to the uncontrollable illegal exploitation of timber, the destruction of forests and aquatic products, the infestation of creatures such as the yellow snail and mimosa pigras and environmental pollution that destroys habitats and the living environment of many species of wildlife./.
