With the support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the experts from the Truong Son Xanh (Green Annamites) project carried out some surveys on forest biodiversity to protect elephants from being injured and prevent them from damaging villagers.

Until now, the USAID has supported Quang Nam with SMART tools in forest patrol and supervision. As a result, the Truong Son Xanh project in collaboration with the Quang Nam provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development officially identified 8 elephants in the protected areas in Quang Nam.

Continuously, the Carbon and Biodiversity (Carbi) project in the 2nd phase in the period of 2019-2024 by World Wildlife Fund aims to preserve biodiversity, restore and exploit ecosystem well in the central area of Truong Son range.

Beside species and forest conservation, this project will support the locals to develop their livelihoods and to enhance their income.
