The Gibbon Journal is a new journal on gibbon conservation
and gibbon research. Issue No. 1 is available now.
From the Editorial:
Welcome to the first issue of the Gibbon Journal. This is the official journal of
the Gibbon Conservation Alliance (GCA). The GCA was founded in reaction to recent
evidence that gibbons not only include the most endangered apes but also the most
endangered primate species of the world. Several gibbon species are threatened by
imminent extinction in the very near future. In addition, the small apes also represent
the least known and most under-researched of the apes. The gibbons are the true neglected
apes and need our help. The Gibbon Conservation Alliance is a non-profit organisation.
Its goals are to save and protect the gibbons, to promote gibbon conservation, to
provide information and support research on gibbons.
