The re-released pangolins were mostly seized by forest management departments and public security agencies of Quang Tri, Ca Mau, Hung Yen, Thanh Hoa provinces and the Hanoi Wildlife Rescue Center.

They have undergone quarantine for over a month, and received special care from veterinarians and professional workers. All thoroughly examined, and their fecal, blood and DNA samples are collected. Moreover, they were fixed chips with their own codes to help identify them before and after releasing.

Mr. Nguyen Van Thai, Director of SVW, said that with the unremitting efforts of authorities to stop illegal wildlife trade and trafficking, more and more pangolins are being rescued. This is a good sign for the conservation of wildlife in Vietnam./.
