Wildlife Flash: Issue 48 (Jan-June, 2022)



In the morning of July 27st, 2022, a rescue team of Wildlife At Risk was quickly mobilized to the field to receive two gibbons after getting the information requiring assistance from the authorities.
The two gibbons were fed by an 87-year-old man at his home, in a very cramped cage, located in an alley on Pham Ngu Lao street, Hiep Thanh ward, Thu Dau Mot city, Binh Duong province. At first, the rescue team was quick to assume that it would be very easy to capture the two gibbons in captivity, however, it took us a lot of time to approach the two animals to get them familiarized with the team members. Because they appeared very shy and fearful of strangers as a result of their years in captivity.

Roughly 2 hours later, we were successful using anesthetic.


The gibbon was being captured by WAR’s staff and forester

These are two individuals of the Red-cheeked Gibbon (Nomascus gabriellae) – a critically endangered species belonging to group IB, Appendix I, Decree: 84/2021/ND-CP dated September 22, 2021, female and weigh in a total of 11kg. The elderly are aware that keeping Red-cheeked Gibbons in house illegally involved in criminal activities. Therefore, he hands over voluntarily these wildlife to the authorities.

With effective cooperation and support, we managed to save the two gibbons

We do welcome the spirit of self-discipline to enforce the law from the owner. At Dau Tieng Wildlife Conservation Station, they will be treated and looked after by the devotion of both vet and WAR’s staff.

A warm hug in a new normal day

After receiving the news that the Forest Protection Department of Tu Nghia district, Quang Ngai province needed to help take care of a Gray-shanked Douc langur (Pygathrix cinerea) on November 23th,2021. The WAR team prepared and traveled to Quang Ngai province. Within roughly 30 hours, we arrived at the local authorities’ office to receive the douc langur.
According to a forestry ranger, this Douc langur was kept as a pet in a resident’s house for a long time in Tu Nghia district. After being aware of the illegal wildlife in captivity, local people immediately contacted the authorities and voluntarily transferred. We met him while he was in poor health with 1.5kg in weight. There was no word to describe how both the WAR team and rangers felt sorry for him. At the present, the douc is not only safe but also be cared closely at Dau Tieng Wildlife Conservation Station.
