Meet our acrobatic northern white-cheeked gibbon
You can find Genta, our male northern white-cheeked gibbon, living alongside our white-handed gibbon, Hazel, and the orangutan family on their island home. Like all gibbons, Genta is an acrobat and can often be seen swinging and leaping between the climbing frames on the island.
Northern white-cheeked gibbons are critically endangered due to continued deforestation to make room for farmland. They have now completely disappeared from China’s treetops and can only be found in Laos and Vietnam.
An uncertain future
Northern white-cheeked gibbons are now only found in Laos and Vietnam. Once found in the forests of China, the species has now completely disappeared from Chinese forests. The future of these gibbons is at risk due to continuous habitat loss by deforestation to make room for farmland.
