Seven macaques transferred to Soc Son Rescue Center
On December 24, seven captive macaques in Hue were transferred to the Soc Son Rescue Center (RC). The transfer includes three Pig-tailed macaques (Macaca leonina), three stump - tailed macaques (Macaca arctoides), and one Rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta).
Since 2008, ENV Wildlife Crime Unit (WCU) documented these violations in seven different local residents’ houses and business establishments.
Thanks to the efforts of local Forest Protection Department, ENV WCU and wildlife protection volunteers, the owners were convinced to voluntarily turn over these macaques. These animals are now on the way to their new home, Soc Son RC.
