Race to Breed Rare Langur on Vietnamese Island

Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, wildlife, protection )

- 1787 days ago -
Thanks to the vigorous efforts by a community-based conservation project, the langur has been rescued from the brink of extinction, but with a fragmented population, recuperating the numbers is tough, especially in prime hunting season.

These animals wouldn't be rare if they were taken care of in the first place. With so few, the gene supply is limited.

I hope these Langurs have the chance to multiply! Or as was said at end of article "if someone put their mind to it they could wipe these langurs out in a month". Sad.
Thank You Cher.
