Spotlight India: one more gibbon family saved
An Eastern Hoolock gibbon family was successfully captured yesterday by the IFAW-WTI rescue team stationed in Roing.
Comprised of an adult male, adult female and an infant male, this family is the eighth group rescued in a massive effort to save an entire population of endangered gibbons from certain death.
It was the quickest capture ever, taking place in just an hour and a half. The three gibbons were captured from a bamboo grove near the village of Dello.
The family was relocated and released today into Mehao Wildlife Sactuary.
