Guardians of the Gibbons

There are five types of gibbons found in Malaysia, and the IUCN lists all of them as endangered. Sadly, they receive very little protection here, and some of the threats to their existence include habitat loss from deforestation and development, poaching, and trafficking. Mariani Ramli has been working to rescue gibbons from captivity, with the aim of rehabilitating and releasing them back into the wild. The founder of the Gibbon Conservation Society, and the Director of the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project (GREP), Mariani or Bam as she's known, joins us to share more about her work, and to also discuss the urgent need to stop the illegal gibbon trade.
