dc.description.abstractIn Vietnam, the turtle is considered as one of four cult animals, since it is believed to be a symbol for longevity. Five species of turtles: green turtle (Chelonia mydas), hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata), loggerhead (Caretta caretta), olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) and leatherback (Dermochelys coriacea) occur in Vietnam. In 1995, the programme 'Salvation of marine turtles in Vietnam' was launched and supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The number of saved hatchlings was on the increase with 6000 hatchlings being saved in 1994, 28500 in 1995 and even up to 70000 in 1997. Little research has been conducted on the marine turtles but a number of ordinances and enactments have been legalised for their protection.en
