Cat Tien National Park,
, was founded in 1978. Comments / picturesNam Cat Tien National Park (Vườn quốc gia Cát Tiên).
Elephants roam the park, but their presence has caused some controversy. In the early 1990s a Herd
of 10 hungry elephants fell into a bomb crater, created during the American War, just outside of Cat Tien. Local villagers took pity on the elephants and dug out a ramp to rescue them. Tragically, since then 28 villagers have been killed by rampaging elephants.
2006: We obtained only one male in our sample, while two subadult/adult males had been sighted during Varma et al.’s (in press) survey, implying that the minimum number of elephants in the park at the time of sampling must have been 12. A surprisingly high mitochondrial diversity was observed with three haplotypes being found in elephants from the same area.
