proudly presents:


The Gibbon Network was founded by Dr. Thomas Geissmann in order to connect people interested in gibbon research, connect field sites in South-east Asia specializing in gibbon research and reintroduction, and facilitate the exchange of gibbon-information and research news.

Please notice that this is an open site, meaning that you are invited to contribute to it. If you want to promote your own gibbon-related research projects, results or field sites, here is an opportunity. Send us gibbon-related texts, news items and information you would like to see on the Gibbon Network (studbooks, publications, news, ... ). If you find some information missing or being out of date on this website, please help us out.
