Kindergarten Kids Moved Out Of Quarantine

From the Nursery to Kindergarten

As you know, the EPRC is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. In 1993, we started very small with only a few animals and very few cages. As the Center grew bigger, we received more primates and started to have more babies around. We have always struggled a bit with money to keep up the standard in captive care and have always done our best. Especially when infants arrived at the Center, we worked even harder!

Đã Đến Lúc Rồi! Nhà Trẻ Đã Chuyển Ra Khỏi Khu Cách Ly

Từ Nhà Trẻ Đến Mẫu Giáo

Như bạn đã biết, EPRC đang kỷ niệm 25 năm thành lập. Vào năm 1993, chúng tôi bắt đầu chỉ với một vài cá thể và một vài chuồng trại. Khi Trung tâm phát triển dần, chúng tôi nhận được nhiều cá thể linh trưởng hơn và bắt đầu có nhiều em bé hơn. Chúng tôi luôn phải vật lộn về tiền bạc để đảm bảo tiêu chuẩn trong việc chăm sóc trong môi trường chuồng trại và luôn luôn làm hết sức mình. Đặc biệt là khi có cá thể nhỏ đến Trung tâm, chúng tôi càng làm việc chăm chỉ hơn!

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.

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.

Surgery Workshop with Dr. Raphael from WCS

Welcome Back Dr. Bonnie Raphael from Wildlife Conservation Society

And Dr. Bonnie Raphael does not only stay at EPRC for 1 day, 1 week, but 3 MONTHS! She is a highly recognizable veterinarian with 20 years of experience with taking care of animals in WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society). Despite her retirement last year, Bonnie came back to EPRC to care for the health of primates at our center. Our deepest appreciation goes to you, a kind and warm-hearted woman Bonnie Raphael.

Since the day she arrived in the middle of August, she has been working tirelessly with some operations on primates at EPRC. Below are some photos from a surgery for Noisy Chi – the Indochinese Grey Langur who had a tumor on her tail.
