Into the green

Tra Su is a typical mangrove forest of the Mekong Delta. The forest, which lies 10 kilometers from the Cambodian border in An Giang Province, has 140 plant species though most of the area is covered by melaleuca trees.

Instagram account vietnam_look took this photo and captioned "It is very interesting to ride a boat around the forest."

Dolphin rescue

A baby dolphin was stranded on a beach in Quang Nam Province until SASA, a group of marine life conservation in Da Nang, came to rescue it. Unfortunately, the dolphin was announced dead on January 22 because its left liver was damaged.
