An endangered pangolin returns to the wild on Cham Islands.

The animal weighed 1.3kg and is 70cm long. It was trapped in the fence of garden at a household in Bai Lang Village, Cham Islands on November 21.

The islander had saved and given the pangolin to the MPA and local rangers for release to the forest.

Last month, MPA and rangers also successfully helped a pangolin get back to the nature on the Cham Islands after locals found it living in a garden of a household in Hoi An City.

The pangolins, which are listed as Critically Endangered species by International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), live in the Islands’ forest.

Cham Islands-Hoi An (including the total area of the Islands’ land and water and Hội An), a World Biosphere Reserve, 20km off the coast of Hoi An, is now open for tourists after months closed for Covid-19 prevention.
