Lovely news Tarequl. For some reason my computer wouldn't let me into the site, so I wondered how safe they are going to be and if they are in danger of local people killing them. I do hope not!

Unfortunately Nicky the article ends with 'plans to build a road through the Pu Mat area to increase patrols on the Vietnam-Laos border pose a "serious threat" to the future of the rare primates.'
