Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park boasts most diverse primate species

Ten species of primates have been found at the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park in central Quang Binh province, the largest number ever seen in a single area in the country, according to a recent survey conducted by Fauna and Flora International (FFI).

Four of the species have been listed as the most endangered primates in the world, which are the Ha Tinh langur (Trachypithecus francoisi hatinhensis), the black gibbon (Hylobates concolor concolor), the black-shanked douc (Pygathrix nemaeus nigripes), and the white-cheeked gibbon (Hylobates concolor leucogenis).

The FFI has said there are more than 400 individuals of each species in the park.

Fauna and Flora International has on July 5 and 6 joined the Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV), the Counterpart International (CPI) and Quang Binh authorities to discuss the making of a development plan for the national park, which was added to the UNESCO's list of World Natural Heritage sites in 2003.
