Sponsor a primate and follow us on our mission. Be part of it and help our animals!
At the Endangered Primate Rescue Center, each successfully rescued primate is a true miracle for both the animal and ourselves. To keep that miracle alive even after they have settled down in our center, it is our responsibility to ensure that confiscated animals will always receive a high standard of care for a safe and healthy life. However, we need to rely on the generosity of donors and sponsors whose contribution will help pay for the enormous ongoing expense it takes to commit to this mission.
Every sponsor will receive a digital package including :
- A sponsorship certificate
- A fact sheet of your sponsored primate and its species
- Photos, along with a nice drawing of your primate
By sponsoring a primate, you will get a digital 'Thank you' package from us. But the main benefit for the sponsor is becoming the primates guardian and providing him or her with food, enrichment, medicines, veterinary care and cage maintenance to make sure your favorite primate receives the best attention it needs.
We have a lot of new primates we want you to meet!
Lo Lem (Cinderella), a female White-Cheeked Gibbon
When Lo Lem arrived at the EPRC in June of 2016 we estimated her age to be between 6-7 years old since she had just started changing colour from black to yellow. She was confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade in Vu Quang, Nghe An Province.
When the rangers got to her she was very skinny and in bad condition. She was not able to climb at all since she had been kept inside a small cage her entire life up to this point. Spending time together with other animals and enjoying daily enrichment and challenges, Lo Lem slowly got better both physically and psychologically. In September 2018, she even gave birth to her first baby!

OMO, a female Grey-Shanked Douc Langur
Now a beautiful and healthy Grey-shanked douc langur, Omo is a perfect example of a traumatized lonely langur who made a miraculous recovery after losing her family to hunters since early days.
Her journey dates back to 2011 when she was rescued by the EPRC in Quang Nam province at 9 months of age. As if her rescue mission was not difficult enough, at one point, the sky turned black and the rain poured down in torrents, forcing us to walk through the mud for kilometers to reach her in a villager’s house. When we arrived, she was sitting on a table and eating noodles which was far away from being a proper food for a langur.

Eva, a female Bengal Slow Loris
In June 2018, Eva was confiscated in Quang Ninh province. The EPRC often receives lorises from this province which is located on the border with China, where these animals would most probably be used for traditional medicine or sold to keep as pets.
Even though Eva did look quite well and in reasonable health when she arrived the EPRC, she was still quite underweight, weighing only 920 grams. But due to our animal care staff, proper feeding and de-worming medicine she has gained weight quickly.

Milo, a female Northern Yellow-Cheeked Gibbon
Milo is a very special girl. Being a Northern yellow-cheeked gibbon, her species was only described in 2010 and so little is known about how many of her kind remain. No doubt, before falling into the hands of humans she lived with her family in the lush sub tropical rainforests of the Annamite Mountains, that span an area connecting Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
Milo arrived at the EPRC in September 2016 from Kon Tum province in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. From her size we estimated her to be around 5 months old, so she needed a lot of dedicated care from our staff, who became her surrogate parents. We named her Milo because the people who handed her over to us had fed her Milo chocolate milk, and we had to wean her off it slowly!

Basti, a male Red-Shanked Douc Langur
Basti is probably our most happy Langur male from the entire EPRC. He has a great family, and calls 4 wifes and 2 kids its own. This is how Langurs like to live: one male with several females.
But Basti's life did not start very well. He was born at the EPRC in 2009, and was less than 2 years old when his father started chasing him out from the family. He was still far too young to be on its own or integrated into a different group of adult Langurs, so we had to make a decision and placed him within the kindergarten group, where all our hand-reared Langur babies live in.
