Bai Tu Long National Park was set up by the Government in 2001. It covers the islands of Ba Mun, Tra Ngo Lon, Tra Ngo Nho, Sau Dong, the Sau Nam islands and another 20 smaller karst islands. The park counts nearly 500 plant species, 37 animals, 96 bird species, 15 amphibian species, 22 species of reptiles and 391 marine animals, according to a biodiversity study by British NGO Frontier Viet Nam.
One of the most endangered animals in the park is the dugong, also known as a sea cow: a large whale-like sea mammal that is in fact, more closely related to the elephant than the whale.
