Rescue Information - Russian Federation

 

Monkey World's reputation for rescuing and rehabilitating abused or neglected primates spreads across the globe.  As a result, two rescued gibbons with turbulent life stories are now in family groups at the park.

Ella, a lar gibbon born around 1985, and Vietta, a golden-cheeked gibbon, probably born during 1993, were both smuggled from the wild to perform in a travelling Vietnamese circus in the Russian Federation.  Both gibbons were confiscated in Russia, before being sent to Monkey World by government authorities.
