Vietnamese Primates: A Timeless Charm

Description
In the fourth instalment of the JGIS Lecture Series, we are excited to bring you Vietnamese Primates: A Timeless Charm. We invite two leading primatologists to share their work in primate conservation and research in Vietnam. Join us to learn about conservation of primates in a rapidly developing country and the critically endangered Tonkin snub-nosed monkey that is only found in Vietnam. We hope that you will walk away with a deeper understanding of our closest animal relatives and new insights on what we can do to conserve them and live more harmoniously with nature and wildlife.
