ĐÀ NẴNG — A collection of 63 photographs, chosen from 774 submissions by 109 artists from 11 provinces and cities, is currently on display at APEC Park in the central city, showcasing Đà Nẵng’s rich biodiversity and commitment to environmental protection.

This exhibition, organised collaboratively for the second time by the city’s National Resources and Environment and the Photographic Artists Association of the city, aims to enhance community and artist engagement in the protection of nature reserves and the unique biodiversity of Đà Nẵng.

The best 15 photographs, capturing the vibrant lifestyles of wildlife and the beauty of flora and fauna in the nature reserves of Sơn Trà, Bà Nà-Núi Chúa, and the Special-use South of Hải Vân forest, were honoured with awards and a total cash prize of VNĐ100 million (US$4,000).

Đà Nẵng boasts a rich ecological system spanning 66,000 hectares – 51 per cent of its land area – and is home to 1,300 red-shanked douc langurs (Pygathrix nemaeus), an endangered species of primates. These langurs inhabit a 4,400-hectare area within the Sơn Trà Nature Reserve.
