About the Cover

The Cat Ba (Golden headed) Langur is found solely on Cat Ba Island in northern Vietnam, where only about 100 of them remain. Conservation International recently listed the Cat Ba Langur as one of the world's 25 most endangered primates. Tilo Nadler photographed this individual inside the safe haven of the Endangered Primate Rescue Center (EPRC) in Vietnam's Cuc Phuong National Park, where dedicated staff rehabilitate rescued primates. Hunters capture langurs such as these to sell as tourist attractions, to animal traders, and according to the EPRC: "This monkey is sometimes sought for the cooking pot, and its bones and organs are also reputed to have medicinal properties." Find out more about the EPRC at www.primatecenter.org  and find out more about endangered wildlife in Vietnam on pages 10-11.
