A rare sight
Any birth is a joyful occasion for a mother, whether human or gibbon. With only about 100 cao vit gibbons remaining in the world, the recent birth of this baby has extra significance. This species is only found in one location in the world, on the international border between Vietnam and China. Fauna & Flora International’s conservationists in Vietnam and China are working with local government and communities to reduce the threats to the population. This birth is a sign of hope for the species’ long term recovery.
