Conduct interviews and field surveys to collect data to identify the presence of the Zhou's box turtle (Cuora zhoui). This species is believed to be highly endemic and restricted to a small area in Ha Giang, Cao Bang and Tuyen Quang Province. Currently there are no known wild populations of this species. A subsequent conservation plan is to be developed if the species is located.

Strategic Direction: 1 Safeguard priority globally threatened species in Indochina by mitigating major threats
