I had the pleasure of talking to our students and teaching them about primates and what the difference is between Monkeys and Apes.
||It was wonderful to share my experiences of the time I spent working in the jungle to help rescue, rehabilitate and release ‘Golden Cheeked Gibbons’ back into the wild.
We also had 2 very special guests visit the school from the ‘Endangered Primate Rescue Centre’ at Cuc Phuong National Park. Ms. Sonya and Ms. Nina gave a presentation to our students, they told us about the endangered monkeys they have at the Centre and the work they are doing to help save them from becoming extinct. We are looking forward to seeing the different primates when we visit next week. Some of the ‘Lemurs’ are extremely rare!
It was great to see everyone enthused and looking forward to learning more about these wonderful animals and how important it is to educate and raise awareness of endangered species so that we don’t lose them forever.
