Rehabilitation of Infant Gibbons caught up in the Illegal Wildlife Trade.
At Dao Tien in the last 12 months we have rescued five infant gibbons, all in different ways suffering from social deprivation and limited physical development. Find out about the challenges for Hoi, Vang, Duane, Tinh Tin and little Loc, as we try to build their confidence and introduce them to each other and the trees.

Well, all our staff now have large smiles when you mention Ellie and Teo. They are the most beautiful pair. Ellie is protective of her new man and shows her affection by gentle grooming for hours every day, which Teo reciprocates. We have never seen Teo do this before.
Just with the day to day care Taite was craving attention and started to run to the keepers for insects. Although signs of a healthy young loris, these are also signs of an individual that will not retain behavioural fitness for release.
Two “bengalensis (Nycticebus bengalenisis)” loris arrived on Dao Tien. How long had they been in captivity? We do not know. They had both worn wire collars fastened to the cage door so they could not move.
