According to Da Nang today, the centre was built by the city–based Centre of Biodiversity Conservation, in coordination with GreenViet, with total fund of VND 1.2 billion (USD 53,000). It will offer free education and nature experiences to more than 3,000 school and university students in the city. The center aims to provide a space for school students to explore the biodiversity of the Son Tra Nature Reserve.

Visitors to the center will be able to study the fauna and flora of the reserve and learn about endangered species. The centre will help raise awareness of environmental and wildlife protection.

Located 6km away from the Son Tra Nature Reserve, the center will also host field trips into the jungle for students and nature lovers. Activities will include wildlife study, painting contests, cleaning the environment, and planting trees on the peninsula.

Son Tra Nature Reserve, which covers 4,400ha, is home to more than 1,300 red-shanked douc langurs – an endangered primate species – and more than 1,000 plant and 370 animal species./.
