The Southern Institute of Ecology and the Danang Tourism Association have jointly sent a proposal to the Danang authorities to preserve the current scenery of Son Tra Peninsula and demolish the foundations of 40 illegally-constructed villas.
The foundations of 40 illegally-constructed villas
The proposal gained approval from all attendants at the conference about preserving and developing the eco-system of Son Tra Peninsula.
All attendants reached consensus that since Son Tra has at least 1,010 different plants, 21 huge fungal species, 700 to 1,300 red-shanked douc, and rare herbal plants that need to be preserved, there must be measures to protect Son Tra.
The Southern Institute of Ecology and the Danang Tourism Association suggested banning any new construction projects and quickly demolishing foundations of 40 villas under construction. The investors must also have measures to prevent erosion during the rainy season.
They also asked the Danang City authorities and the government to remove Son Tra from the list of potential locations for national tourism sites so that it can be developed into a natural reserve.
In order to improve the current tourism services, the Danang authorities should set up inspection teams to assess the on-going projects in the peninsula and establish Hai Van-Son Tran world biosphere reserve.
In March, Da Nang authorities suspended the unlicensed construction of Bien Son Tra eco-tourism area project. By that time, the investor, Bien Tien Sa JSC, already illegally laid down the foundations for 40 villas.
