In 2008 the second international primate conference ‘Conservation of Primates in

Keeping to this schedule of quinquennial primatological conferences in Cuc Phuong we would like to invite all interested primatologists and conservationists to attend the third conference ‘Conservation of Primates in
Indochina’. This will allow the exchange of
information about primate conservation work in the region including the
results of research and status of primates, and will be a step in the
preparations for the IPS Congress in August 2014.
Aside from scientific presentations pre and post conference tours are planned. Integrated in the program is a field trip to Van Long Nature Reserve with the possibility to observe the endemic and ‘Critically Endangered’ Delacour’s langurs (Trachypithecus delacouri) in their natural habitat.
We hope to provide an attractive agenda with interesting presentations, field trips, and a pleasant stay at Cuc Phuong National Park with the possibility to visit the Endangered Primate Rescue Center which currently houses more than 150 primates representing 15 species of Vietnams’ endangered primates.
