Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary – Can Tho

Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary is in Thot Not District, 60km west of Can Tho City’s center. The site is home to several species of birds and storks.

The stork sanctuary is 1.5 hectares in area. The best times for observing the storks are early morning (0600-0700 A.M) when the storks depart the nests to look for food and at dusk (1650-1800) when they come back to the nests to roost. The most crowded period is from late August to February when food is abundant and when the storks lay and incubate eggs.

The stork sanctuary was started in 1983 when a flock of several storks came to the farm of a family in Thot Not, Can Tho. The host family since then has done their best to make the habitat as good as possible for the birds which makes them come more in number.
