Helena Nguyen Vietnam 2012

Geography Vietnam is a long,narrow nation shaped like the letter S.It is in southwest Asia on the eastern edge of the peninsula known as Indochia.Its neighbors include China to the north and Laos and Cambodia to the west. The south China Sea Lies to the east and the south.

The mountain of the Annam Cordrilld rise over most of the western side of Vietnam,while a thousand miles(1,600-kilometers)coastline dominates the east. At Its narrowest point,Vietnam is only 30 miles (40 kilometers) wide.

Two of Vietnam's largest rivers,The Mekong in the south and the Red in the north,end at the South China Sea in huge Swampy plains called Deltas. These regions are home to most of the country's people and provide fertile ground to grow rice and many other crops.

Nature Vietnam's mountainous terrain,forests,wetlands,and long coastline contains many different habitats that supports a great variety of wildlife. 180 reptiles,800 birds,and 80 amphibians in Vietnam.

Many rare and unusual animals live in Vietnam,including giant Catfish,indochinese tigers,Soala antelopes,and Sumatran rhinos. The government has set up 30 parks and reserves to protect Its animals,but their survivals is in doubt because much of their habitat has been cleared for lumber or to grow crops.

Tropical forests once covered most of Vietnam's space, but over the past few hundred years,logging has reduced the forest cover to only about 19 % percent. The government has launched a replanting program in an attemt to restore these woodlands.
