Aspinall Foundation, and works to support a number of overseas conservation
projects including the Java Primate Project in
Indonesia. We are home to a collection of
around 170 rare and endangered primates, including Javan gibbons, Dusky
langurs, Sulawesi macaques, Pied tamarins and Gelada baboons to name a few.
We have recently
built a rescue and rehabilitation centre in Java where rare Indonesian primates
can be confiscated and taken care of; with a view to either returning them back
to the wild or providing them with a better quality of life. Ultimately,
captive bred animals may also relocate to the centre, providing offspring that
could boost the wild population when reintroduction conditions are right.
