Cat Ba Langur Project

Open for Participation

Introduction: The Cat Ba Langur is one of the 23 most critically endangered primate species in the world. As of July 2016 only an estimated 51 - 54 individual remain, up from the 2003 low of 40 individuals, but a substantial drop from the 64 – 70 individuals counted in 2015. The Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project (CBLCP) was launched in November 2000 with the main objective of halting the impending extinction of the Cat Ba Langur (Trachypithecus Poliocephalus). The Langur is a leaf eating monkey that is endemic to Cat Ba Island situated in Ha Long Bay, Northern Vietnam. Under the stewardship of Mr. Neahga Leonard (Project Manager) the team focuses on; Species and Habitat Protection, Population Monitoring, Law Enforcement, Research and Environmental Education.

Scope of Project: The project requires support with equipment like computers, binoculars, tracking equipment to conduct field work and also accommodation for the project team. They are severely underfunded, which is endangering the survival of this beautiful primate. Your contribution can help save this species.

Duration: Long term until specie stabilizes.
