This small primate species is unique to Java and vulnerable to extinction.

Wild Javan langur numbers are decreasing at an alarming rate due to the illegal pet trade, hunting for food and medicine, and ongoing habitat loss. The population is suspected to have fallen by at least 30% over the last three generations and is now classified as ‘Vulnerable’ on the IUCN Red List.

How your Javan langur adoption helps

The Aspinall Foundation has been working in Java since December 2010 with projects to rescue primates from the illegal pet trade, and rehabilitate and reintroduce them back into the wild. To date, we have released over 280 primates to protected sites across Java, with subsequent wild Javan langur births numbering at over 40.

Our team on the ground combat wildlife crime, engage with local communities, support scientific studies and patrol the forest.

Javan langurs in Kent

Both our partner parks, Howletts Wild Animal Park and Port Lympne Reserve, are currently home to a group of Javan langurs. See them for free with your adoption (except Bronze).

Where possible, the primates born at these parks are relocated to our sites in Java to live free in their natural habitat and support wild populations. The Aspinall Foundation has transferred 36 Javan langurs from European Parks to Java so far, where new wild births are being recorded by our monitoring teams on the ground.

Adopt a Javan langur with The Aspinall Foundation and help to protect endangered species.

Fun facts about Javan langurs

  • Javan langurs can have two colour forms, either black or a reddish brown.
  • At birth, young Javan langurs wear a bright orange fur.
  • Studies suggest that infants’ bright orange coloration is an evolved trait that helps females in a group recognise an individual that needs care.
  • ​West Javan ebony langurs exhibit a polygynous mating system, in which males mate with multiple females, but females mate with just one male.
  • An estimated population decline of more than 30% over the past 36 years (comprising three generations of West Javan ebony langurs)
