Bat conservation at Cat Ba Biosphere Reserve, North-East Vietnam

Vu Dinh Thong

This project aims to promote bat conservation in Cat Ba Biosphere Reserve by: 1) conducting field surveys to determine species diversity and population structure; 2) assessing the principal threats to the bat population; 3) drawing up conservation recommendations; and 4) raising the profile of bats both locally and with national decision makers. Although the current project is focused on the bats of Cat Ba, it is anticipated that it could become a role model for other areas and taxa both within Vietnam and regionally within SE Asia.
