Fourth snub-nosed monkey offspring welcomed in SW China's Guizhou


At the wildlife rescue center of Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve in southwest China's Guizhou Province, Fanfan, a Guizhou snub-nosed monkey, joyously welcomed her fourth offspring on March 21. Both parents, Fanfan and Tiantian, originally from the wild, sought refuge in 2016 and 2011 individually at the center due to prior injuries. Their offspring include Jianjian, now 6 years old; Kangkang, 4 years old; Qianbao, 2 years old; and the newest addition to the family.

Residing in the secluded Mount Fanjing, Guizhou snub-nosed monkeys are facing endangerment, with only approximately 800 remaining globally. Designated as a national first-level protected animal since 1989 and classified as Endangered (EN) by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2008, their conservation has been of utmost importance. Since its inception in 1990, the wildlife rescue center has remained steadfast in its commitment to rescuing and studying these monkeys and other wild animals.
