With their unique looks, the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey ranks high on my list of favorite primates. With a population of only about 250 individuals they are critically endangered and at high risk of extinction. #wildlifeconservation #primates #endangeredspecies #conservation #vietnam @ffivietnam @faunafloraint
Views of Hang Son Doong from above. The first photo is high above the second doline and the second and third photo show the dense forest above the cave. If you look close you can see the first doline in the distance in the third photo. #hangsondoong #aerial #vietnam #caving #speleo @oxalisadventure
Enjoy the beautiful calls of the Cao Vit gibbon on this International Gibbon Day. With only 120-130 individuals left worldwide, the Cao Vit Gibbon is one of the rarest and most endangered primate on the planet.

Currently in Son Tra with the Douc Langur Foundation filming these little guys. Frame grab from the @canonusa 1DXII
Rice terraces in northern Ha Giang province in Vietnam. The clearing of forests for agricultural use has increased the pressure on Vietnam's wildlife, reducing the habitat needed for viable populations. The habitat for the critically endangered Tonkin snub nosed monkey, which is adjacent to these rice terraces, has been reduced to a small fraction of what it once was.
A baby grey-shanked douc langur who was rescued from the illegal wildlife trade plays with its care taker at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center (@endangeredprimaterescuecenter) in Vietnam. Endemic to Vietnam, the grey-shanked douc langur is critically endangered and at risk due to habitat destruction and poaching. #vietnam #douclangur #endangered #conservation
