Ca Mau to set up protected forest area on Hon Khoai-Hon Chuoi islands

31 January 2021 | 05:49:00 AM

Ca Mau People's Committee has announced the establishment of a conservation forest to protect the ecosystem on Hon Khoai and Hon Chuoi island cluster.



Hon Chuoi Islands

Hon Khoai Islands include Hon Khoai, Hon Sao, Hon Doi Moi, Hon Tuong and Hon Da Le islands. The islands are over 5 million square metres and belong to Tan An Commune, Ngoc Hien District. Hon Chuoi Islands are nearly 760,000 square metres in Song Doc Town, Tran Van Thoi District.

Nearly 5.4 million square metres of the islands are forest. Ca Mau People's Committee will set up a historical, cultural, tourist site and conserved forest.

The site will be set up in order to protect and sustainably develop the forest and the genetic resources on the islands as well as in the sea. Another aim is to control the invasion of harmful non-native species and ensure green coverage in Hon Khoai and Hon Chuoi islands as well as the historic constructions for further tourism development.

The local authorities were asked to implement measures to deal with climate change and natural disasters, improving the living conditions for everyone living on the islands including better transportation, healthcare and housing.
