DONATE AND BECOME ONE OF THE BABY PRIMATE GUARDIANS
Share with your friends
Be a GUARDIAN of one or more baby primates at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center. Our goal is to raise 700 US$ for each of the baby primates at the EPRC before the end of 2018, which is the average cost per year to give them the best attention they need. By co-sponsoring one of the baby primates your name will be (optionally) listed on the online profile of the baby you are safeguarding and we will also send you an online certification of adoption.
At the Endangered Primate Rescue Center each successfully rescued or bred primate is a true miracle for both the animal and ourselves, as it will contribute to the survival of their species. However, we need to rely on the generosity of donors and sponsors whose contribution will help pay for the enormous ongoing expense it takes to commit to this mission. By reaching the set fundraising goals we will be able to fully cover food, enrichment, medicines, veterinary care, cage maintenance and rehabilitation of the babies. This would allow us re-orient the limited available funding towards other projects that would further ensure the survival of the endangered primate species such environmental education and the protection of their forests.
Scroll down to have a closer look at the currently listed baby primates and get to know them a bit better:
Beo is a red-shanked douc langur and is a bit less than a year old. His name means “Fatty” because after being rescued by the EPRC, his figure has gained quite a few grams in a short time. Beo was found in Nam Dong (Hue), Central Vietnam, which is 650 km away from our center in Cuc Phuong (Ninh Binh). We heard that some local citizens accidentally discovered him alone in the forest before they reported to the ranger force. However, based on our experience, there's very little chance a baby langur let go of his/her mom. Most of the cases, there can be some hunter who killed the Mom and tried to sell the baby as a pet.
Only a few weeks after her rescue, her head fur starts changing already. We think that she is a silvered langur, but we still not sure to which type of silvered langur she belongs. She is so well-behaved as she doesn't cry too much when the "mothers" are not there. She finishes always finises her milk and even started to eat a lot of leaves already! And here goes a favorite quote of animal keepers: 'Her 💩 is perfect!'. She is healthy little girl and we hope a long and happy future.
Django is a baby from from Willy and Mia born at the EPRC on the 8/3/17, so he is almost a year old. It's the second baby for this couple. They were very neglectful and impatient with their first baby, but have learned to be much better parents with Django. Willy, Mia and Django are Hatinh langurs and are part of successful breeding and reintroduction program. Several Hatinh langurs born at the EPRC have been recently been reintroduced back into wild, in Kẻ Gỗ Nature Reserve, and they seem to do perfectly fine!
