The turtle has been sent to the Centre for Rescue, Conservation and Biological Development in Cuc Phuong National Park to be taken care of.

This is the biggest turtle received by the national park so far. In Vietnam, there are few such big turtles.

Earlier on March 20, up to 92 animals of 17 wild species were taken to Cuc Phuong National Park after being rescued.

Cuc Phuong is Vietnam’s first national park and is known for its wild animal rescue and care.

To date, the national park has received thousands of rescued wild animals of different species.
