Dying. This gibbon is my everything. ♥️♥️♥️
This Javan gibbon, Rose, is alive and thriving today thanks to @balisafari.
At three-months-old, she was in poor health and destined to be sold in the illegal pet trade. Thankfully, she was rescued and given a home @balisafari
where she has been well cared for. Found only in Java, Indonesia, there are less than 2,000 of these gibbons left in the wild due to habitat destruction and the illegal pet trade. Conservation institutions like @balisafari
work to save this species by rescuing confiscated Javan gibbons – without professional care and socialization with other gibbons this species’ chance at survival is slim outside of their natural habitat. These institutions also collaborate with the Bogor Agricultural University to successfully manage a captive breeding program for this endangered primate species.
