Javan gibbon family free in the forest of Mt Malabar, Java

On March 26, Jowo, Bombom and their offspring Yani and Yudi were released into Mt Malabar reintroduction site after spending a couple of weeks in their acclimatisation enclosure. They adjusted quickly and were calling and displaying normal behaviours within days.

Since the release they have continued to be monitored and although not venturing too far from the enclosure they are so far doing very well.

Sadewa and Kiki, who were released into this area last year have moved to the opposite site of the forest establishing their territory in a new area.

The Gibbon Protection Unit (GPU) continues to patrol the forest for illegal activities and is so far having an effective presence in the area. Funds are urgently required for the coming year to replicate this unit in other areas in an attempt to combat the increased poaching of young gibbons in Java.

JGC has had several new arrivals in the last month, all young gibbons, included Devi (pictured left) who was suffering serious medical conditions on arrival. Her health has dramatically improved and it is hoped she can move to a large pair enclosure at some stage soon.

Congratulations to the teams at JGC and Puntung, who continue to work tirelessly to help the gibbons. Great work everyone!

You did it! $5000 for gibbons!

Thanks to all of you who went without for April. We raised $5000 which will go towards our important projects in Java.
