I would like to talk about my experience seeing the red-shanked douc langur in a wildlife rescue center. Two years ago, my classmates and I were on a school trip when we visited Cúc Phương national park in Ninh Bình province. There, we went to EPRC, which stands for Endangered Primate Rescue Center to learn more about Vietnam’s wildlife. I was walking around the center as a family of colourful-looking monkeys caught my attention. The tour guide informed us that their names were “red-shanked douc langur” due to the reddish color of their legs. Apart from that, their faces were bright orange and their torsos and arms had three colors in the order of black, grey and white from the top down. Their tails were about 1.5 meter long and coated in white fur. They were housed in a large enclosure with wooden beams so they could move around freely. Our visit coincided with their feeding time so we got to see them being fed. Their diet comprised mostly fresh leaves collected by the keepers and some fruit. They seemed to be joyous having their meal. However, I also learnt that the reality of their survival was grim. As a species, they’re critically endangered and most of the langurs at the center were rescued from illegal wildlife trade markets or turned in after being raised as pets. Luckily, there had been efforts to save them from the brink of extinction. I was so enthralled by their majestic beauty and I promised myself that day I would spread awareness about their protection whenever I could.
