Founded in 1992, Cat Tien National Park covers about 720 km and protects one of the largest rainforest areas in Vietnam with diverse vegetation of bamboo forests, agricultural lands, wetlands, and grasslands. Cat Tien National Park is also home to many birds and mammals such as Asian elephants, bears, crocodiles, gibbons, deer, etc… The park ecosystem plays an important role in maintaining the conservation of the biodiversity in the region as well as in the social and economic life of ethnic communities: Ma, Tay, and Stieng living in the Reserved for several centuries.
