We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, breeding, research and conservation of Vietnam’s endangered and critically endangered primate species.
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.
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.
