EAST Releases Rescued Endangered Primates!

Dao Tien Endangered Primate Species Centre, Vietnam, is now rehabilitating 22 rescued gibbons, 6 pygmy loris and 2 douc monkeys. The team have already radio-collared and released 2 of the loris, Mistletoe and Thang. With their radio-collars, they can be tracked to check their progress in the forest of Dao Tien.

Two douc monkeys have since been released into the forest and are making great progress. Without GPS collars it is not easy to find the doucs, but they are spotted every few days and are still together and are healthy and relaxed. Having been stolen from the wild, they are now back where they belong - in the forest!

However, there are many more to go and before the releases back into the national park, radio/GPS collars are needed for the loris and gibbons, so that the team at Dao Tien can make sure they are doing well. You can help by sponsoring a radio/GPS collar for a rescued primate to go back into the wild. Details can be found on the EAST website

www.go-east.org and there is a Just Giving page www.justgiving.com/gpsgsmtrackingcollars so you can help to put rescued monkeys and apes back into the wild!
