Fieldwork by the sea 🌈☀🌊 @langurprojectpenang

Thanks to @langurprojectpenang for their involvement in the 1st Kedah Cycle and Run for Water #repost ・・・
Kedah Cycle and Run for Water by WWF Malaysia
11 November 2017
Keriang Hill Resort
Ulu Muda, the 163,000 hectare forest in Kedah house the headwaters of the rivers that provide us as 96.5% of Kedah and 80% of Penang's treated water supply for domestic and industrial use. Function as a water catchment area, we have have to work together to protect Ulu Muda from logging and poaching to ensure water for life and commerce!

We, LPP thankful for the opportunity from @wwfmy to share our wildlife knowledge with the locals.

P/S: It has been an honour to have Kedah Princess Yang Teramat Mulia Dato Seri Di Raja Tansri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz Binti Almarhum Sultan Abdul Halim Mua'adzam Shah (Tengku Temenggong Kedah) to visit our educational booth for Ulu Muda Water Cycle Event (6th photo)!

爸爸,您是我启蒙的导师,您是我受挫的安慰,您是我一辈子的目标,在我人生的道路上,您给我支持给我鼓励! .
Do you know that an alpha male langur do spend time embrace, groom, play with and guide his infants? Instead of just being a family leader, father langur assists his wives to babysit the infants, sometimes even bring along the little ones for an adventurous leaping experience in the trees! Where the infants will then learn about the excitement of being arboreal! .
您知不知道爸爸叶猴也会照顾他们的孩子?就像我们的父亲一样,爸爸叶猴会抽空帮助他的妻子们太小孩- 抱他们,跟他们玩,和教导他们。有些时候心血来潮时,爸爸猴会突然间带孩子去感受在树林高处跳来跳去刺激的感觉呢!可能这也是一种让孩子们学会不怕高的技巧吧! .

MOST RECENT

Secondary forest is full of life and we are always surrounded by amazing birds and invertebrates performing beautiful melodies during fieldwork. At most the time we do observe other wildlife forage and activity alongside the langurs, for example, the black giant squirrels, plantain squirrels, racket-tailed drongos, long-tailed macaques, tree snakes and more.
Sometimes we get lucky and able to spot some real camouflage and daytime inactive wildlife. Look at the left side of the photo, there was this shy and elusive mammal resting on a vitex pinnata tree... It was a Sunda colugo (Galeopterus variegatus)! It was very hard to spot it at first, especially during daytime where the colugo would be inactive and resting, without any big movement. However, thanks to Ah Jiao, a subadult langur, we managed to spot the colugo. Ah, Jiao was being playful and decided to approach the colugo for greetings, where she sat next to the colugo and watched the resting neighbour with fascination.
Colugos are considered to be one of the closest living relatives to primates, unfortunately very little is known about their biology, ecology, and behaviour.

Fieldwork by the sea 🌈☀🌊 @langurprojectpenang

The langurs brought us to the coastline for their foraging routine. While they were moving along the concrete divider, we spotted something unusual, where there was human junk food scattered on the divider platform - left over by the human, which we suspected those are for the long-tailed macaques.
We were worried that the langurs may get curious to taste the food on the platform. Surprisingly, the langurs ignored the junk food completely. It started off with the alpha male stared at the food for a while, then walked over the invasive food source. The others followed, where some of them avoided the food by leaping to the nearby vegetation while the rest just ignored and walked away. Therefore, the langurs don't need human food to survive, they have their natural food resources to depend on!
Many people feed wild animals due to sympathy and developed from the habit of feeding domestic animals. However, from the perspective of wildlife, the species are meant to be foraging and feeding in their natural habitat, with special diet requirement and unique foraging behaviour. Take dusky langurs as an example, these primates are folivorous, where they mainly feed on leaves and their digestive system is able to process plant material from a wide variety of plant species by fermentation. Feeding them the wrong food will cause digestion problem and may lead to serious consequences.

Human food is not a good option for primates as full of preservatives, colouring and most importantly, it is not the natural food source for the animals. If you love wildlife, appreciate them from a safe distance and do not interfere with their life! Say no to Feeding Primates as this seems to be "sympathy action" can lead to over-habituation & loss of foraging instinct among primates, disease transmission (among primates and human), expose the primates to poaching possibility, and aggression toward human (human-primate conflict).

We were invited as the guest speakers for the Jane Goodall Institute (Singapore) Lecture Series on 25 November 2017!

It was a true rewarding experience speaking and sharing with the audience. Instead of just talks, we did educational outreach activities for adults and children too!

Thank you so much to JGIS, Singapore Botanical Gardens, NParks, Andie Ang, Vilma D'Rozario and the team for the great arrangement and warm hospitality!

Three infant langurs were playing up in the tree, leaping left and right while trying to keep an eye on each other without being 'play bite' or 'jump kick'! All of a sudden, these three musketeers noticed something... the emergence of the blue monster!
It was a leaf...NO! A flower...NO! It was a plastic bag, hanging from the tree! Full of excitement and curiosity, the infants decided to check it out to investigate the identity of blue monster!
Touched the monster using fingers, no response! Then started to kick the monster back and forth, just like a football! Eventually, the blue monster became the infants' new toy, until... it slowly fell down from the tree... We were wondering how the plastic bag ended up in the middle of the forest? Well, may due to various reasons - human intruders, wind, macaques etc. Are plastic bags really everywhere now?

This little punk was a pain in my ass today. Kimani is only a year and a half old, and NEVER STOPS MOVING, which makes it next to impossible to record every little thing she does down to the second. But I finally got to watch her mom Kioja nurse her, which was pretty neat.

We all have our one favourite sibling in the family to hang out with - same goes to the langurs! Certain infant langurs are really close to each other, especially to those infants from different mothers that share similar birthdays, with just a day or two apart!

In this video, mother langur, Ok Ok, had to care for her daughter, Hua Hi and another little boy, Leng Zhai, that got welcomed to this world one day earlier than Hua Hi. These two infants are so close to each other until the fact that both mothers often need to take turns to babysit the two babies together!
Dusky langurs live in harmony, despite the individual adult hierarchy. However, when it comes to taking care and protecting the young ones, all family members work together to ensure the safety and well-being of the new generation!

Monitor lizards are probably one of the most misunderstood wildlife ever! Most people will go 'ewww' or 'nahhh' during encounters with these reptiles. However, the monitor lizards are absolutely harmless and also play an important role in our natural environment food chain and as bio- pest controllers in urban ecosystem too!
Unfortunately, these lizards are one of the top roadkill wildlife in Peninsular Malaysia 😢 - 667 cases between year 2012 to 2016 , especially in highways or urban neighbourhood areas, due to habitat fragmentation.

So when you encounter monitor lizards on the road, do slow down your vehicles to let these gentle creatures cross the road safely!

Langurs obtain most of their water resources from stream water, young leaves, fruits and sometimes even chew on soil and tree bark for the moisture. During the coastal flowering and fruiting season where langurs often visit the beach for food plants, they will never forget to explore the rocks for accumulated freshwater from the rain the day/night before.
Look at them, enjoying the fresh rainwater together as a happy family. The accumulated water taste slightly salty as the coastal rocks contact with sea water, giving the langurs a boost of taste and minerals such as sodium, magnesium, calcium and so much more!

Furthermore, after the langurs had a wonderful feast of coastal plants and water by the beach, they would come down to the beach area for a fun exercise! So… not only humans love to hang out by the beach, but langurs too!

It was a wonderful day when we captured this adorable moment of a 3 weeks’ old infant langur tasting an Antidesma spp. leaf, out of curiosity. The infant managed to tear a part of the leaf, tried his best chewing in. However, after a few seconds, infant realized that he is not the time for a folivorous diet yet, hence let go and back to his mother’s breast milk.

How amazing it was to witness this beautiful moment, where infant langurs watch and learn from their family members on what to eat, what to avoid and what to depend on in the forest. Without the guidance from the elders, infant langurs may fail to be adaptable and independent when they grow up.

What a beautiful fieldwork route today. We follow where the langurs go! 🐒🐵💚❤

This was one of the sweetest moments we have observed. The infant langur was just less than two day old when we captured this adorable footage.

Pok Pok, the eldest infant of this 3rd generation of langurs we are currently observing, looked confuse and weak, as he was still so young and 'fresh out of the womb'. The younger members of the family were so excited and curious on this new arrival, thus took turns to appreciate and care for this beautiful, fragile and vulnerable baby.
Langur family protect their babies just like how we human do, making sure that our young ones are safe and healthy. Now imagine the cruety behind primate pet trade, where a whole troop of langurs were harmed by poachers just to capture the new borns to sell as illegal exotic pets.

Many people only see the cuteness of the infant langurs being circulating in photos around social media, as part of illegal primate trade advertising. However, who would feel sorry for the infant langurs that lost their family members,  unable to swing and play in the forest with their siblings,  yet stuck in diapers and cages, to feed on unhealthy human food while not mothers' breastmilk?  In the end, most langur pets would die due to malnutrition, neglection and self abuse.

You will never learn how to appreciate until you care. "Tak Tau Maka Tak Cinta". 👈Malay proverb, "If you never know, you'll never love". Let's be compassionate toward the wildlife residents around us, notice them, learn about them and speak for them.
俗语说,"不懂的话,就不爱"。让我们一起学习爱护我们周围的大自然生态吧!

Me when I sit down at a table and feel something sticky and realize I didn't bring hand sanitizer.
Japanese macaque, Macaca fuscata. #sticky #whatisthis #gross #anthrolab #anthropology #bestlab #primatebehaviour #primatology #japanesemacaque #macacafuscata

In this photo, an alpha male langur was positioning himself on bamboo while monitoring his family members crossing over from the other side. Then, a troop of macaques came over where the langurs had no choice but to compromise and wait for the macaques to move away. Most of the young macaques respected the alpha male langur, kept a distance from him and the alpha macaque had no interest in interacting with the langurs as well.

Until a male macaque decided to take a leap toward the alpha langur.
The alpha langur was so calm and gave the macaque a 'stare', where the macaque then quickly moved away from leaping.
Alpha langur was steady and continued to guard his family.
看一看这一张照片,叶猴老大在竹林里头待着,观察着他的家人一只一只地从雨林的另一边跳跃过来。然后,一家庭的猕猴就出现了。叶猴们很有耐心地静静等候着,让猕猴们走了后再移动。大多数的年轻猕猴都尊敬叶猴老大,连猕猴老大也识事,自己干自己的事。

直到...有一只猕猴就在叶猴老大的不远内,想跳跃到叶猴老大的范围里。

叶猴老大很镇定地,安静地,只给于此猕猴一个非常有威力的眼神- 猕猴就在跳跃后快快地跳到后面去了。

叶猴老大继续地守候着,看着自己地家人在猕猴和竹林里头进行日常生活。

At average, the Spectacled Langurs or Dusky Leaf Monkeys weigh from 5-9kgs, but they actually need at least 2kgs of food (primarily leaves) everyday!
Talk about eating clean and staying in shape!

Langurs stay still on tree branches when it's windy, raining or thunderstorm. As during these scenarios it will be a challenge for the langurs to move as it is more slippery and the rain affect their vision. When it gets too cold, they cuddle to rest as well!
当下雨,风大或暴风雨时,眼镜食叶猴们会在树干上安静地休息和坐着,这是因为雨水和风会导致叶猴们的视力和动作上的困难。所以啊,当在雨中天气特别冷时,叶猴们就会互相拥抱来取暖哦!

Check out Dr. Birute Galdikas' feature in the cool graphic book "Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas". Although the book came out in 2015, a copy just arrived at the SFU Library!
The Department of Archaeology is pleased to announce she will be teaching ARCH 322 (Great Ape Societies) and ARCH 344 (Primate Behaviour) in January 2018 for our spring semester!

I see you see me~ 我看你看我~

The infants were discussing on who to approach the camera to have a look. In the end, the curious Leng Zhai the handsome boy decided to leap forward to investigate the camera!

Here is the precious moment to share with you guys - langurs play and live in the forest, being free and healthy in their natural habitat.

Little hint: Did you notice that Leng Zhai was given a forward push by his sister at the beginning of the video?
宝宝叶猴们那时在讨论着谁应该向前往相机探望。最后过了十分挣扎,小帅- 可爱的小儿子,决定往相机跳来探索!

这是个非常珍贵的影片- 宝宝叶猴们开心和无忧无虑地在他们的自然栖息地里玩乐,最重要是很自由地可以健康和家庭一起在森林成长。

小提示- 您注意到吗,在影片开始的一秒钟内,小帅被他的妹妹推了一把,以鼓励他向前。

When langurs meet an almighty reticulated python!
蟒蛇驾到!

Nature is full of surprises, as we encountered lots of interesting stories between the langurs and other wildlife! Though nature food chain involves predators and preys, the wildlife species respect each other’s territory and able to compromise in living around the same home range. This is LIFE and HARMONY!
大自然每天都是充满惊喜的!我们在近两年考察中也体验了不少叶猴们和其他野生动物的互动经验。虽然在森林食物链里头有强者和弱者,但不一样的野生动物可以在现在不大的栖息地中和谐地相处,是非常值得我们学习的!

Dear Ah Pek, you look more and more charming each day. From the days where you were still an infant to now where you are the co-leader of this family, you grow up too fast. ❤🌳🐒

Forest by the sea is full of life. Let's protect those homes of many wildlife. 🐒☀🌈🌳

One of the best photos we have.
Langurs have a strong family bond and often show affection and care for each other. Even though the juveniles may be from different mothers, yet they spend a lot of time grooming, playing, feeding and foraging together.

Look at this adorable photo we taken last year, Gina(left) and Liang Liang(right) from our Teluk Bahang group. Both juvenile siblings were curiously exploring and foraging in their natural environment.
Side by Side, Hand in Hand <3

We are so happy to annouce... Another on-going collaboration with @natureclassroom !!! Can't wait for langur rainforest tour, #NCLPPLangur
Can you guess where is our next destination?

我们又再一次和好友自然教室合作啦! 您们猜猜看,我们下一个"雨林,猴猴玩!" 的地点在哪儿呢? 🐒🌳

Second time for us as guest lecturer to a batch of American University Program (AUP) students in INTI International College Penang!
We talked the introduction to primates, who are the trimates, what are the main groupings in primate order and so much more!
Thank you INTI for inviting us, once again! Looking forward to more collaboration in near future!

We collaborated with @tropicalspicegarden for a Langur-Rainforest Walk & Talk Educational Tour on 2nd Sept Saturday.
Joleen (Founder of LPP), did a short briefing on general introduction on primates and explained about this particular study group in Teluk Bahang that also covers the garden as part of their home range. Then, we went out to the garden for a walk and got to learn about some common native/cultivated plants that frequently fed by the langurs. Lastly, the participants worked together to create an interactive poster presentation based on what they learnt from the walk and talk.
Amazing monkey morning! 😍🐒 #LangurProjectPenang #wildlife #nature #penang #duskyleafmonkey #trachypithecusobscurus #spectacledlangur #research #conservation #wildlifeconservation #primatesarenotpets #primate #primatology #wildlifebiology #natureeducation #primatesofmalaysia #primatesofpenang #primatebehaviour #ecology #fieldwork #tropicalspicegarden

We were at #FreedomFilmFest #PJLiveArts to support the screening of Andrew's documentary, The Hills And The Sea!
Andrew is one of the grant recipients for Freedom Film Festival 2017 and we LPP is so proud to be featured as one of the two main protagonists, alongside #NelayanTanjungTokong, in this documentary!

For science and nature conservation!
为科学和生态保育!

The coastal foraging season for the langurs and squirrels started since June, where these wildlife will frequently cross the road (via connected trees/cable wires/run across the road) to the coastline for food and shelter.
So, if you spot us working by the edge of the road in Teluk Bahang area, please do not honk! Give us a thumb up instead, as we are very focus on the langurs and a sudden honk sound will give us a shock and may put us in danger situation!
We are all working hard to gather solid data on the impact of roads toward wildlife behaviour! Looking forward to share more with you guys!
沿海地带有很多野生动物的植物食物。在六月期间时,野生动物们都开始一直探索海边来觅食和休息。由于森林和海边被大路分裂了,所以叶猴和它们的朋友都要想办法过马路,比如通过连接大树,电线和在马路上跑过。

当您们在Teluk Bahang一帯看见我们在马路旁观察叶猴时,希望大家不要按车喇叭!我们都是很关注地在考察着,所以突然的喇叭声会把我们吓到而可能造成危险噢!
我们在努力收集着关于马路如虎口-对野生动物的威胁。大家为我们加油吧!

Learning about langurs and rainforest is so fun! Especially when the classroom is indeed a rainforest! 🌳
NC+LPP 2.0 will be back again!
在大自然里学习眼镜食叶猴和热带雨林真的是好好玩啊!🐒
“雨林猴猴玩 2.0” 很快又再诞生了!敬请期待哦!
