Are they looking at a brighter future?
Hoolock Gibbons are the only species of Apes found in India. They can be seen in the entire North- East Indian region, in small pockets of Forest lands and green areas.
We have two sub-species – the Western and the Eastern Hoolock Gibbons depending on their distribution.
Today there are less than 2500 individuals that survive in the wild. They are considered an endangered species by IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
The major reason being habitat loss and changing forest land into agricultural land.
