Introducing the Central Truong Son Initiative



Posted on 01 September 2005  | 
From its charismatic endemic species such as the stunning douc langur and the remarkable saola, to some of the
world’s most endangered species like the Asian elephant, Indochinese tiger, and Javan rhinoceros, the Greater
Annamites is a region of global significance.

The central Truong Son landscape is the critical centre-pin for successful conservation of the Greater Annamites as it has characteristics of a transition zone between temperate
and tropical systems, and has a unique biodiversity value both within the Greater Annamites and globally. The central Truong Son (CTS) is situated in central Vietnam
and southern Laos PDR and is based around the central massif of the Truong Son mountain chain.
