THE PROJECT IN JAVA CENTERS AROUND SAVING THE ENDANGERED JAVAN LANGUR & GIBBON, ALSO KNOWN AS THE MOLOCH OR SILVERY GIBBON. WE ARE THE FIRST TO DO THIS WORK IN JAVA.
With less than 2,500 mature Javan gibbons in the wild, these primates are one of the most endangered species of primate in the world.
The Aspinall Foundation’s Primate Project has two sites in Java. One in the East and One in the West. Our in situ team rescue primates from the illegal pet trade, whilst we send gibbons and langurs born at our Kent wild animal parks to the centres, in order to boost the indigenous populations.
Since our Javan Primate Project began in 2012, we have released 135 primates into the forests that we protect, so that they can live in the wild – where they belong.
