The Bac Lieu Bird Sanctuary, which is home to rare flora and fauna, will become an eco-tourism area, according to a decision by the Bac Lieu Provincial People’s Committee.
A VND100 billion project has been initiated by an investor, the Rong Vietnam Investment and Tourism Joint Stock Company, to build the Bac Lieu Eco-tourism Area on an area of 130 hectares with 12 zones, including a national park and a nature reserve, with some of them expected to be completed before the coming Tet holiday.
All rare flora and fauna as well as landscapes will be preserved and protected while tourists visit the site.
The sanctuary with a rich and diversified biology has attracted 78 species of birds, with many listed in the Red Book of Vietnam, said Mr. Luong Ngoc Lan, Deputy-Director of the Province’s Agriculture and Rural Development Department
