As many as 135 animals saved from captivity were recently released into Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, located in Quang Binh Province, north-central Vietnam.

The management board of the national park announced the release on Monday.

The board collaborated with the Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Hanoi Wildlife Rescue Center to free 135 animals and birds into the park’s strictly protected and ecological restoration zones, which cover a total of 1,233 square kilometers.

Among the animals and birds were pygmy slow loris, red-breasted parakeets, Alexandrine parakeets, Asian palm civets, masked palm civets, spalacids, and wildcats. 

Most of them are classified in Group IB, the list of endangered species of forest animals that are strictly prohibited from exploitation and use for commercial purposes, and Group IIB, including forest animals that are not yet threatened with extinction but are in danger if not strictly managed. 

Limited exploitation and use for commercial purposes are allowed with animals in the latter group.

Before they were released back into the wild, the animals were taken care of by the Hanoi Wildlife Rescue Center.
