"Cao Vit Gibbon’s Ark" Gibbon Documentary Screening and Sharing


This is the world's first film on the critically endangered Cao Vit Gibbon. It tells the survival story of this mysterious primate living in limestone forests on the Sino-Vietnamese border, and how two countries partner up to protect this species which has a global population of a mere 120 individuals. Once considered extinct, this species was rediscovered in Trung Khanh County of Cao Bang Province in northern Vietnam in 2002 by Vietnamese experts; and Jingxi City of Guangxi Province in China in 2006 by ecologists of Kadoorie Conservation China Department of Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden. To create a safe haven for the species, Vietnam established Trung Khanh Species and Habitat Conservation Area in 2006, while China established a provincial nature reserve in 2009 and upgraded it to a national reserve in 2013. Since then, two protected areas started to work in tandem to ensure the long-term survival of this rare primate.
