How to Treat a Langur in Semi-Wild Area?

Annual Health Check-Up Time

Just a few days before the terrible tropical depression, something serious happened at our center. Every day our keepers have to call the primates from semi-wild areas back for checking their health. Suddenly on that day, a male Delacour’s langur didn’t appear as usual. We tried to find him for all the day, but it was impossible until late afternoon.

EPRC In The Early Days

From Our Photo Archive

In this photo from 2010 is Mr. Vinh – one of our most skillful keepers at EPRC. 25 years ago, the number of keepers here can be counted only on the fingertips. Our facilities were not as developed and fully furnished as now. If now, it only takes us 30 minutes to call gibbons from semi-wild area for health check, in the past, it took the keepers half a day.

So many things have changed, yet our goal will never change: “To provide rescue and rehabilitation to endangered and critically endangered primates that have been confiscated from illegal wildlife trade in Vietnam.”. Over the past 25 years, countless endangered primates have been rescued and released back to the wild. Lots of gibbons, langurs, and lorises have found their true home in the nature, or stay under detailed daily care of EPRC.

Vietnam's Cat Ba Langurs
1. Cat Ba Langurs’ Special Trait

Drinking salt water is a unique typical trait in Cat Ba Langurs which differentiates them from other langur species. As their only natural inhabitat area now is Cat Ba island, it seems that these langurs have adapted to their surrounding environment and seek for some salt water just like the fishermen like their food salty.

The feature picture was beautifully and timely taken by Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project – the only on-site project on Cat Ba island now which specializes in Cat Ba langurs. They established a protected langur sanctuary inside Cat Ba National Park in 2002, and work closely with the rangers to guarantee the safety of these Vietnam endemic primates which are also one of the rarest primates on Earth.

Happy International Zookeepers Day 2017!

Thank You to Our Keepers!

Animal keeping is not a regular job in Vietnam. For many people in Vietnam, this honorable job was seen as a “low-class” job. People think that animal keepers just purely clean poo of animals and feed them. The truth is, this job is much more than that.
