To confirm the existence of the Saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis) population in Pu Mat National Park, Nghe An Province, CERD will conduct interviews, make observations for possible footprints and feeding traces, collect and analyze dung specimens, coordinate camera trapping, and collect leeches for DNA analysis. A follow-up proposal for the survey of the species in the Northern Annamites will be submitted to the Darwin Initiative.

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