Protecting endangered gibbons in Mondulkiri

Emerald’s drive to enhance activities in our biodiversity offset to achieve a net-positive impact has led to a collaboration with Jahoo, a gibbon ecotourism and conservation research venture working to protect endangered gibbons in Mondulkiri. With the help of Jahoo, a pilot program aptly named Reconnecting Gibbons has been launched with the installation of three canopy bridges within the biodiversity offset and at Okvau. Though canopy bridges are not new, this is the first time they have been installed in Cambodia.

Camera traps monitor activity on the bridges with the hope that a variety of arboreal species, especially gibbons, will utilise the bridges to safely cross forest patches and access suitable habitat.
