The End of the Stick Insects Season

Stick Insects Endangered

These last weeks, we have been very sorry to observe a huge population decline… of stick insects! This curious animal is a great source of proteins for our Lorises who would give anything to get a bite of it for dinner.

Although stick insects are known for their ingenious capacity to ensure their survival and protection from predators, they couldn’t escape from the sharpened sight of our volunteers squad who have been chasing them tirelessly these last months to feed our little primates.

The season has been good and enabled us to ensure sufficient supply for winter, by freezing a fair amount of stick insects and mixing them into a green creamy paste (yum!). This way our Lorises will still be able to enjoy their favorite food while stick insects are hibernating.

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!

Education for Nature-Vietnam Interviewed Our Director

EPRC Welcomes Education for Nature, Vietnam

A few days ago, we were happy to receive the visit from Education for Nature–Vietnam who came to interview Adam, our Director, for a future media project.

Also known as ENV, this organization have been inspired by the simple assessment that saving endangered species could not be possible without an awareness-raising effort among the Vietnamese public to protect this country extraordinary biodiversity.

Besides campaigning and spreading greater knowledge to influence public attitudes, they decided to engage in the battle against illegal wildlife trade by denouncing wildlife crimes and supporting enforcement efforts on a regional, national and even global level.

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.
