New hope for rare ape (Morning Star) Hy vọng mới cho loài vượn quý hiếm

The largest remaining population of a critically endangered primate has been discovered in Vietnam, Conservation International said today.

After monitoring the song-like calls of the northern white-cheeked crested gibbons the charity has estimated the population in Nghe An province’s Pu Mat national park at 455.

It fears that road development in the area could lead to the gibbons being hunted.

“Without direct protection in the park it is likely that Vietnam will lose this species,” said a Conservation International spokesman.

The species is considered “functionally extinct” – that is, there are no populations large enough to maintain themselves – in China.
