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

11 species listed as Critically Endangered



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.


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.

Besides of exploring, finding food and rest, primates also spend a lot of time for grooming and catching lice for each others, which is like a way of showing love – strengthen the strong bonds between the members in herd.

Bên cạnh việc khám phá, tìm thức ăn và nghỉ ngơi, linh trưởng cũng dành rất nhiều thời gian cho việc chải lông và bắt rận cho nhau, đây giống như một cách thể hiện tình thương- tăng mối liên kết chặt chẽ giữa các thành viên trong bầy đàn.
