Two villagers from Andoung Kralong handed the conservationists of WCS and Ministry of Environment in Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary (KSWS) a young Yellow-cheeked Crested Gibbon on 24 November 2017.
Yellow-cheeked Crested Gibbon (_Nomascus gabriellae_) is listed on the IUCN Red List as Endangered. Its global population has been rapidly declining over the past decades, with hunting and habitat loss being the big threats. KSWS is a very important area for the species, where more than 2,500 Yellow-cheeked Crested Gibbons fill the forest with their haunting territorial song. This female gibbon is about six-week years old and was sent to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center for rehabilitation and care.
