We are very excited to announce that 2015 has officially been declared Year of the Gibbon!
Year of the Gibbon is an IUCN SSC initiative focusing awareness for gibbon conservation efforts. Intended as a useful tool for conservationists, fundraisers, educators and governments, 2015 will be the year to sing it out loud: save the gibbon! YOTG sends a clear political message from the international community to combat the illegal trade and ongoing habitat destruction threatening the survival of the gibbons. We hope that this initiative will serve as a catalyst for high-level political support and commitment to protect the gibbons in the wild across all range states.
Stay tuned for SGP’s YOTG events throughout the year!
