The administration of Dong Thap Province in southern Vietnam has set up five working teams to take charge of a draft scheme on conserving and raising red-crowned cranes at the province's Tram Chim National Park. The five teams will be responsible for legal affairs, natural habitat restoration, personnel affairs, basic investment, information, and communications. As part of the project, the province will fund activities to improve the cranes’ habitat, support organic agricultural production, and promote tourism. The provincial administration previously signed a deal with the International Crane Foundation and the Vietnam Zoos Association in April this year to revive red-crowned crane flocks at Tram Chim National Park. Tram Chim National Park is among a few areas where red-crowned cranes have recently lived.
