The Endangered Primate Rescue Center was founded in 1993 to help protect Vietnam’s primates. The EPRC is home to 190 primates from 15 difference species of langurs, lorises, and gibbons. The EPRC rescues, rehabilitates, releases, provides sanctuary, and has a breeding program for certain species.
ASAP Species That We Work On
What We Do
The EPRC is the only place that Cat Ba Langur, Delacour’s Langur, and Grey-shanked Douc Langur can be found in captivity. All three of these species have a successful breeding program at the EPRC. T
he Northern White-cheeked Gibbons are rescued from the wildlife trade, and almost all are non-releasable. Because of their secure status in zoos, the EPRC does not breed N. leucogenys.
The EPRC educates many visitors each year about the species in our care, their threats, and what actions people can take to protect them.
Where We Work
We are located in Cuc Phuong National Park, Nho Quan District, Ninh Binh Province, Vietnam
