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 fifty or so individuals in several isolated sub-populations. It was then that the Cat Ba langur was listed by the World Conservation Union (IUCN), as one of the world’s most endangered primate species.

Towards the end of 2000, Münster Zoo and the Zoological Society for the Conservation of Species and Populations (ZGAP) 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.
