The establishment was announced by the ministry and the provincial government on June 24.

The Thai Thuy Nature Reserve covers a total of 6,560 hectares, of which 1,500 hectares are strictly protected, another 4,800 hectares are dedicated to ecological recovery and the rest is for administrative services.

It is bordered by the Thai Binh River to the north, the Diem Ho River to the south, the East Sea to the east, and a dyke to the west.

Thai Thuy is one of 68 wetlands in Vietnam and home to many species of migratory birds which are threatened globally.

It also has the potential to provide various ecosystem services, including fishery resources, coastline protection, climate regulation and environmental cleaning.

The establishment of the Thai Thuy Nature Reserve aims to protect local biodiversity, especially threatened bird species, and to encourage community engagement in the sensible management and use of wetland ecosystem services.
