Fauna & Flora is building community-led conservation initiatives across critical forest habitats to protect the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey from habitat loss and hunting.
Our work with Tonkin snub-nosed monkeys
We have focused on community-led conservation by engaging local communities in species monitoring and habitat protection. Our work in the Khau Ca species and habitat conservation area is the first successful model of spatial-use forest management. It has demonstrated the importance of communities in establishing sustainable conservation initiatives. Fauna & Flora has also developed a species conservation action plan for these sites, and we are raising awareness about this endemic primate.
Fauna & Flora built the Khau Ca and Tung Vai conservation field station and continues to support community-based patrol groups in Quan Ba and Ha Giang, with five patrol groups. Fauna & Flora is currently planning mitigation strategies to protect forest quality for the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey.
