It’s also a communication programme of the Danang-based Centre of Biodiversity Conservation, GreenViet, in raising public awareness of protecting the langur and the biodiversity of the 2,500ha Son Tra Nature Reserve.

The exhibition opened on January 10 and will last until January 15.

The Son Tra Nature Reserve, 10km from Da Nang, is known for its rich biodiversity and is home to 300 red-shanked douc langurs, only found in east-central Laos and Vietnam.

The central city has chosen the red-shanked douc langur as the official mascot of Da Nang at the 2017 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Economic Leaders’ Meeting.
