The small apes are just as great as the big ones.

Gibbons are endangered because the forests they call home are being destroyed for logging and agriculture gains at an alarming rate.

 

The main culprits of deforestation are the industries of timber, paper & pulp, and especially PALM OIL. The top two producers of palm oil in the world are Malaysia and Indonesia, these countries are ravaging their lands to set up palm oil plantations - decimating their forests, and killing off the biodiversity that call these jungles home.

THEIR HOMES

Gibbons face serious threats from humans who use them for commercial exploitation.

 

Illegal wildlife trade intensively harvests Asian apes from the wild for pets and tourism attractions. Poachers hunt to capture infant gibbons because babies are easier to control in captive/tourist settings. In the process gibbon mothers, fathers, grandparents, and adult siblings are often killed as they try to protect their babies from poachers and danger.

SPREADING THE WORD

 

We work diligently to raise global awareness of the small apes to save them from extinction:

  • Educating and engaging people to take action to help protect and conserve gibbon populations and gibbon habitats for today and for the future. 

What We're Doing To Help:

Why Are Gibbons Endangered?

ADVANCING SCIENCE

 

We conduct natural, wild-based research in partnership with the Wild Gibbon Research Project:

  • Employing the best available methods to continue the long-term primate research projects on white-handed gibbons, pileated gibbons, and pig-tailed macaques at Khao Yai National Park in Thailand.
