Updated 13:25, 05-Sep-2021

A large number of golden snub-nosed monkey activities were captured by infrared cameras recently in Giant Panda National Park's Huilonggou area, southwest China's Sichuan Province.

Images and videos collected by Giant Panda National Park's Pengzhou Management and Protection Station show that a group of about 50 golden snub-nosed monkeys stayed for about a week at an altitude of 2,500 to 3,200 meters. The monkeys are bright in color, healthy in shape and have a wide range of activities. 

Golden snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus roxellana) are national first-class animals and listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species.

The area has a good ecological environment and is rich in biodiversity, making it a suitable habitat for wildlife. In addition, Pengzhou Station also photographed the giant panda, takin, forest musk deer, black bear, Chinese Monal, Temminck's tragopan and other national first-class and second-class protected animals.
