From 15 to 17 September 2021, Association Anoulak was invited to take part the online International Sharing Workshop for the conservation of Black Crested Gibbon (Nomascus concolor). The workshop was organized and led by Fauna & Flora International-Vietnam. The aim of the workshop was to bring together the research community working on N. concolor, to share their findings and on-going projects in order to find ways to improve the conservation status of the species. Ultimately, this first collaborative event should lead to forming a coalition of people with a keen interest in the species and able to share ideas and data.
The online event brought together over 30 researchers and conservation practitioners from China, Vietnam and Laos: the three countries where the species occurs. The Black Crested Gibbon (N. concolor) is classified as Critically Endangered in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
Association Anoulak was invited to present on our on-going programs in Laos, and discuss the current work we are implementing on gibbons. The presentation, which provides a good overview of our overall work, can be watched below:
