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.

Although both were born on March 1st, the two Loris sisters Tik and Tok had a different start in weight.At the time of 7 days old, loris Tik’s weight was 42g, while Tok was only 32g (30% difference compare to her weight).However, after 2 months of constantly trying to eat and breastfeed, baby Tok is nearly chasing her sister’s weight. Now, Tok weighs 132g, while Tik is 134g, still heavier but not too much different.The weights are all measured at the same time of day, and don’t worry, both loris sisters and their family are in very good health.What do you think about the results of the upcoming weight measurement will be like?Don’t forget to follow us for more updates.Thank you! —————————————Tuy đều sinh vào ngày 01/03, nhưng 2 chị em nhà Culi Tik và Tok đã có sự khởi đầu khác biệt khá nhiều về cân nặng.Vào thời điểm 7 ngày tuổi, cân nặng của Culi Tik là 42g, trong khi Tok lúc đó chỉ mới 32g (chênh lệch đến 30% so trọng lượng của Tok)Tuy nhiên, sau 2 tháng không ngừng cố gắng ăn uống và bú sữa mẹ, bé Tok đã gần rượt đuổi được cân nặng của cô chị mình. Tok bây giờ đã nặng 132g, trong khi Tik là 134g, tuy vẫn nặng hơn nhưng không đáng kể.Các lần cân đều được thực hiện cùng thời điểm trong ngày, và các bạn hãy yên tâm, cả hai đều đang trong tình trạng sức khỏe rất tốt.Theo các bạn, kết quả lần cân sắp tới sẽ như thế nào? Nhớ đừng quên theo dõi chúng tôi để được cập nhật thêm tình hình nhé.Cảm ơn các bạn!——————————-📌Visit our website: #eprc #endangeredprimaterescuecenter #loris #slowloris #cuteprimate #cucphuongnationalpark #zooleipzig #vietnam See MoreSee Less
