From Rehab to Rainforest - Gibbon Family On Their Way to Ape-solute Freedom

Many of us rejoiced at the birth of baby Axel, the first-ever gibbon born at a rehabilitation centre in Malaysia to rescued parents Ebony and Coley. For the first time after 10 years of operations, the Gibbon Conservation Society (GCS) of Malaysia finally has a family so close to being released back into the wild, but before that can happen, Ebony, Coley and Axel will be closely monitored to ensure that they can survive and function like a proper gibbon family there. This process also includes health checks, food, release site surveys, equipment, and more, which GCS are currently fundraising for. We speak to Stephanie Theresa, the Vice President GCS, to find out more.
