Ca Mau Cape was recognized as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 2009.

Located in Ca Mau Province in the southernmost tip of Vietnam, Ca Mau Cape Biosphere Reserve is an area of stunning seascapes and ecological diversity. The 371,506-hectare area is home to over 170,000 people and a rich biodiversity encompassing three types of ecosystems including marine, mangrove and tropical rainforest.

The biosphere reserve also houses Mui Ca Mau National Park and U Minh Ha National Park, which are widely known for their peat swamp forests, a vast diversity of rare animals and plant species. Examples of such special creatures include the crab-eating macaque, the lesser short-nosed fruit bat, or the spot-billed pelican. Botanical rarities include bùi ba vỏ (Ilex cymosa), melaleuca forests, siamese balsa, and ba chạc (Euodia lepta).
