Tour description provided by Viator

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission Primate Specialist Group (IUCN/SSC PSG), the International Primatological Society (IPS), and Conservation International (CI), there are 25 of the world’s most endangered primates, of which Vietnam has 6 species of langurs, 4 species of gibbons and 1 species of macaque. 4 of those are endemic to Vietnam and maybe wiped out in the next decades if the Vietnam government and natural organizations don’t take real actions to protect them. In the World of Endangered Primates, we bring you a chance to watch those langurs in the wild, study their habitats, food, habits, and especially their main threats, so we can contribute our efforts in protecting those lovely creatures. While searching in Phong Nha NP, you’ll get to explore one of the largest of the many limestone caves that riddle the park.
