25 species of Vietnam’s primates are ‘on the edge of extinction’

11 species listed as Critically Endangered

1.

Poaching

Primate poaching is widespread and common in Vietnam. Poachers covet the monkeys for their bones, organs and tissues, which are used in traditional medicines. The essential reason for the immense volume of wildlife in the illegal trade and the dramatic decline of wild animal populations – not only primates – results from an ineffective, unmotivated and apathetic enforcement of existing laws.

2.

Habitat Destruction & Fragmentation

Deforestation of natural forests in Vietnam is proceeding at an alarming rate, and even though forested areas in general increase through reforestation it is predominantly as monoculture plantations. A large number of protected areas are very small or fragmented, and are therefore highly vulnerable to anthropogenic impacts.

[English translation below]🎉Chào mừng chú Culi mới đến với EPRC!
Hai ngày trước, một chú Culi pygmy đực được một gia đình ở Ninh Bình giao nạp cho EPRC. Chú Culi này được một người dân phát hiện khi ông đang đi dạo trong vườn. Ban đầu ông nghĩ đó chỉ là một con chuột lớn nhưng khi đến gần ông nhận ra "Đó là một con Culi! ". Sau đó, ông đã nhanh chóng giao nạp chú Culi này cho EPRC.
Hiện tại, chú ấy đang rất khỏe mạnh trong khu vực Kiểm dịch của chúng tôi. Sau này, chú Culi sẽ được gộp đàn và nó có thể giao lưu với những người bạn mới của mình.

🎉We are welcoming a new pygmy loris to EPRC!
Two days ago, a male pygmy loris was surrendered to the EPRC by a family in Ninh Binh province. The pygmy was first detected by a citizen when he was walking in his own garden. The man just thought that it was a big rat at first but then it turned out a loris after the approach! Therefore, he surrendered this loris to EPRC.
Currently, the loris stay healthy in EPRC Quarantine Area and he will be introduced to a new group where he can socialize with his fellows.
