The two will conduct studies of the monkey and flora populations and habitat, recover and expand the forest biotope, set up an ecological corridor, and prevent and reduce human-caused threats to Tonkin snub-nosed monkeys and their biotope.
They will also apply advanced technologies to conservation and awareness improvement, and help with capacity building for the parties involved in biodiversity conservation.
Ha Giang is now home to about 200 Tonkin snub-nosed monkeys, a primate indigenous to Vietnam. They are facing the greatest risk of extinction in the world as a result of poaching and narrowed habitat caused by deforestation.
