Save the Langur in Cat Ba Island

An initiative we are proud to support is the Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project, which leads the vital effort to protect this critically endangered primate.

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 polio-cephalous). 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.

We believe we have a collective duty not to let this beautiful and very vulnerable species become extinct. As of early 2017, less than 60 individuals remain, up from the 2003 low of 40 individuals, but a substantial drop from the 64 – 70 individuals counted in 2015.
