Description

Gibbons are one of the most threatened primates in the world due to increased habitat loss from deforestation and exploitation from the illegal pet trade. Gibbon Conservation Center’s mission is to promote conservation and research for gibbons through educational programs and crucial habitat protection. As their gibbons are wild and endemic to the dense forests of Southern Asia, the Gibbon Conservation Center is committed to providing a wild-like habitat that serves their instinctual acrobatic lifestyle and their fruit-based diet.
