This is the first largest gibbon release ever from the Dau Tieng Wildlife Conservation Station. Most the above-mentioned wild animals were confiscated by Binh Duong Provincial Forest Protection Department, DiAn City Police and Forest Protection Department of Tan Uyen – Phu Giao district from illegal trading, captivity or voluntarily handover by people to authorities, and then transferred to Dau Tieng Wildlife Conservation Station. The wildlife had been cared at the Station located at 303, Le Danh Cat Hamlet, Thanh Tuyen Commune, Dau Tieng District, Binh Duong Province. Before the release, the wildlife was checked by WAR’s veterinarian to ensure a sufficient condition in health.
