The Fight to Rehabilitate & Save These Singing Apes

Mariani Ramli, Founder, Gibbon Conservation Society

Gibbons, also known as the singing apes, are endangered in Malaysia, but we don't even know how many of them we actually have left across both the Peninsula and East Malaysia. Marini Ramli, also fondly known as Bam, has dedicated her life and career towards protecting these gibbons. She started the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project or GReP and later on the Gibbon Conservation Society to help rehabilitate orphan gibbons until they can finally be released back in the Malaysian jungles, and to create greater awareness about the vital role that these small apes play in our megadiverse ecosystem. In conjunction with International Day for Biological Diversity, she joins us on the show today to share her personal journey in conservation and the work that GCS is doing.
