My Story

Malaysia is home to 5 species of gibbons, all of them are endangered and on the IUCN’s Red List of Threatened Species. Gibbons are considered “lesser apes”, but they are often confused with monkeys because of their similar size. Gibbon are apes in the family of Hylobatidae and the easiest way to tell them apart from monkeys is the absence of a tail.

Like many primates, their biggest threat is a loss of habitat from deforestation, but they are also threatened by illegal wildlife traders capturing and selling gibbons to people who want them as pets. Gibbons aren’t not meant to be pets, they need to be in the wild, swinging from trees, amongst other gibbons. To trap one baby gibbon, poachers often have to slaughter a family of upwards to 10 because they will fight to the death to save their family.

Gibbons Conservation Society is the only NGO in Peninsular Malaysia that is dedicated to gibbon conservation. The main purpose of their project is to support the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project to rescue, rehabilitate and release Gibbons and other primates that have been rescued from the illegal pet trade. This society highly depends on us as public to keep their rehabilitation project going especially during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Thus, if you have means to do so, let’s work with us helping Gibbons Conservation Society in gibbons rehabilitation by donating any amount of money to keep Gibbons healthy and well fed. No matter how large or small the donation, every little will makes a difference and gets Gibbons one step closer to being released back into the wild.
