Critically Endangered

Brunei; Indonesia (Kalimantan); Malaysia (Sarawak)

The Bornean Banded Langur is found in swamp and lowland forests, as well as mangrove. The average size of groups is around 3-7 individuals (J. Hon pers. Comm).

This species of Langur is listed as Critically Endangered as it is only known from five sites, where populations have been reduced by approximately 80% over the past 30 years (three generations) and the trend is suspected to continue into the future due to habitat loss from expanding oil palm cultivation.

IUCN Red List

Bornean Banded Langurs are critically #endangered in #Brunei #Indonesia #Malaysia because they have lost 80% of their rainforest home in the past 30 years. Enough is enough! Let’s #Boycott4Wildlife the brands responsible for destroying their home.

In addition, the area of occupancy has been reduced dramatically. This species was once considered common. They are now considered one of the rarest primates in the world. They live in less than 5% of their historic range. Additional conservation measures are urgent as this species could go extinct if current trends continue.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices
