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.

A Toad at EPRC?!?

A Toad Friend

Some weeks ago, we observed a strange scene right in EPRC. CP, the Delacour’s Langur found a toad and held it for straight 2 days. She didn’t harm the toad at all, instead, was embracing it and took care of it well.

We have never seen this before, but assume that CP might be pregnant and she was preparing for her upcoming baby. However, until now, no baby has been delivered. We will keep waiting and updating for you all

Our Primates Are Photographed by National Geographic Scientific Advisor

Take a sneak peak into the collection of photographs that was taken at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center by the multi talented Pierre de Chabannes, National Geographic Society’s Scientific Advisor, who has travelled around the world with the mission of documenting the 12,000 species held in captivity presently.

The Endangered Primate Rescue Center, who houses some of the rarest primates on Earth that cannot be seen in any other captive facilities in the world, presents wildlife, zoo and primate photographers a unique chance to broaden their photo collection of endangered and lesser known animals. In this article, we would like to share with you some of the best shots of the primates in the EPRC that were captured by Pierre de Chabannes, along with basic description of the species and story of the individual.

The Adorableness of Primates at EPRC

The Most Adorable Primates Living In EPRC

This morning we went to check on the weight of our lorises to keep track of our animals’ growth and took Beni, the Red-shanked douc langur, for a walk and play. Let’s take a look some of the most adorable primates living in EPRC.

Beni was confiscated in Hue and then arrived at our center in November 2015 when he was estimated to be 9 months old. To lose one’s family from such a young age usually imprints a certain degree of trauma on an animal’s memory. For this very reason, we knew straight away that Beni will be received special attention from us before he can live harmoniously with other langurs in a big enclosure.
