We are very sad to report on a desperate situation in West Java, where a family of gibbons had become isolated in a very small patch of forest. Unfortuantely, with ever decreasing habitat, this scenario is likely to become a common occurrence and we must be prepared for translocation strategies. On this occasion, we have been unable to act in time but we are now assisting with urgent plans to move the remaining gibbons to a safe area. Please see the report below from our partners in the field.
Recently our President Clare Campbell flew to Jakarta to attend a conference and the launch on 26th May of an Occasional Paper of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Species Survival Commission.

Fantastic news from Javan Gibbon Centre!
Two pairs of gibbons have been released by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, acknowledging the strong commitment to conservation of the Javan gibbon. Doesn’t get any better than that. Huge congratulations to the JGC team and thank you so much to every one of our supporters that made it happen!
