The Vietnam government has given the go-ahead to a plan to better protect elephants.
And laws against hunting, transporting and selling elephant meat or tusks will be tightened.
The plan, worth US$13.3 million, was signed yesterday by Deputy Prime Minister Hong Trung Hai.
Under the plan, three conservation areas for wild elephants will be set up in national parks of Pu Mat, Cat Tien, and Yok Don.
Good news for once. Now let’s do it for real…
