Meet the newest edition to the Nguyen family, Mai. Mai has quite the heartbreaking story and it deeply moved us, so we adopted him!
Mai was born at the #gibbonrehabilitationproject and was successfully paired with a mate with whom he had a baby boy. Before the new family could be released into the wild, a python attacked and killed the baby and permanently injured the mother. Mai was re-paired and with his new mate he had a baby girl, but at this time his eyesight started to go. Money was raised for him to get eye surgery, but once at the hospital, it was discovered that his condition was not fixable. Now that he is blind, he cannot defend himself in the wild. He has lost two families and will spend the rest of his life in captivity. Despite all he has gone through Mai still sings and moves about without letting his blindness hold him back. He will make his last years, his best. Thank you to everyone at the GHO for the hard work you do!! #gibbonmonkey #Mai #savethemonkeys #gibbonrehabilitationproject
