So far, Karuna’s soft release into the forest has been successful- more updates coming soon! We hope Nangali-soka and Karuna’s love continues and their family grows, so there are more Pileated Gibbons in Uddom Srae Puos Forest!
This true love story was made possible by the Forestry Administration’s Director of Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, Mr. Nhek Ratanapich where Karuna previously lived, and the Ministry of Environment who protect Uddom Srae Puos Forest.
Pileated Gibbons are globally Endangered so every one returned to the wild counts! In Cambodia, the species are found mostly in the Cardamom Mountains where Wildlife Alliance – Ministry of Environment rangers patrol to reduce threats to wildlife including Pileated Gibbons.
