Nearly 150 photos featuring the daily lives of endangered red-shanked douc langurs, often dubbed “the Queen of primates” for their colorful fur, are being displayed at an exhibition in the central city of Da Nang.
The exhibition aims to raise public awareness of protecting the species, categorized as "critically endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
Ho Chi Minh City-based photographer Nguyen Truong Sinh, whose works account for half of the exhibits, said he spent more than two years following and capturing the douc langur’s daily activities in Da Nang’s Son Tra Peninsula.
“Through the exhibition, we would like to introduce the douc langur’s unique beauty to Da Nang people and the public with hopes that they would love this species and protect it together,” Sinh told Tuoi Tre newspaper.
Vietnam is home to around 1,000 red-shanked douc langurs, cinluding nearly 300 in Son Tra Peninsula alone.
The exhibition at Da Nang General Science Library, 46 Bach Dang Street will last until May 22.
