Bu Gia Map National Park is created to better protect natural forests representing the transition from the Central Highlands to Southeast of Vietnam and also representing typical evergreen and semi-evergreen monsoon forest ecosystems on low mountains below 1,000m above sea level. The Park is located at 12.1154° N, 107.2430° E in a mountainous area at altitudes 300-700m altitude, which is in the North of Binh Phuoc Province.
The missions of the park are to:
- Create facilities for scientific studies related to wildlife and environment.
- Protect watershed forests for hydropower plants;
- Develop eco-tourism and environmental services;
It covers an area of 25,601 hectares within the home range of many hardwood trees that provide natural habitats for endangered wild animals such as pangolins, gibbons, langurs, Asian elephants, and other globally threatened species.
