    Vietnam Primate Conservation Program and Endangered Primate Rescue Center, Vietnam – Report 2007
    At the end of 2007 the EPRC housed 141 individuals of 17 taxa. Nine individuals of 5 taxa were born during the year and 16 individuals died; nine of those that died were pygmy lorises. Eight captive bred Hatinh langurs were transferred in September to Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park
    for the reintroduction project.

    Cuc Phuong is a major center for breeding of leaf-eating monkeys. The scientific standard is equal to Koeln, Bangkok-Dusit, Singapore and San Diego Zoos with langurs.

    Scientific research on langurs is being scientifically and fundamentally explored at this institution. Since, a couple of years a very authorative journal is also being published.

    I sincerely hope that zoos in SE-Asia, including China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and India-Nepal will develop links to Cuc Phuong to improve husbandry, management and scientific research in range countries on langurs - a fair number of which are (critically) endangered as we speak -!!!:D

    Some important births ! : ( facebook )

    NEW BABY LANGURS ARE BORN!

    Two new babies have been born at the EPRC, the first for 2017! They're a Red-shanked douc langur - born to Laura and Basti - and a Hatinh langur by parents Willy and Mia.

    This is great news for these Endangered and Critically Endangered species with two more infants to join the fight against extinction.

    #Did_you_know ? The EPRC is the only rescue center in the world to see Hatinh langurs in captivity, and now a captive-bred Hatinh baby, who should one day return to a safe forest!
