1. Where is Bach Ma National Park in Vietnam?

Bach Ma National Park is in the districts of Phu Loc and Nam Dong in Thua Thien Hue Province. It is located 60 kilometers south of Hue and 65 kilometers north of Da Nang. The national park covers 220 square kilometers and is divided into three zones: a strictly protected core area, an administrative area, and a buffer zone.

Bach Ma's location on the biogeographical border between northern and southern Vietnam, combined with the park's diverse habitats ranging from the coast to the high mountains, means the park is rich in biodiversity. The primary vegetation types are moist evergreen and montane forests, with areas of scrub and grassland where human disturbance has been high.

The park's mammals are not well known, even though it once housed important species such as the Asian elephant, white-cheeked gibbon, and red-shanked douc langur. It also protects important bird species, especially Vietnamese endemics like the Vietnamese crested argus, Annam partridge, and Edwards' pheasant, which were thought to be extinct.
