The Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project



The Cat Ba langur (Trachypithecus poliocephalus poliocephalus), also known as Golden-headed langur, is endemic to the
island of Cat Ba in Northern Vietnam. By the year 2000, poaching had reduced this species to only 53 individuals in several isolated sub-populations and the Cat Ba langur became listed by the IUCN, the World Conservation Union, as one of the world’s most endangered primate species.

Towards the end of 2000, the Zoological Society for the Conservation of Species and Populations (ZGAP) and Münster Zoo (Germany) formed a cooperative partnership with Vietnamese conservation agencies, and the “Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project” was initiated.

Since then, langur poaching has been brought under control and in 2003, for the first time in decades, the population of the Cat Ba langur increased.
