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.
