Living on the edge

Despite their ingenuity and resilience, gibbons are seriously in danger.

All twenty recognised species of gibbon are threatened with extinction on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: five are critically endangered, fourteen are endangered, and one is vulnerable. We can still pull them back from the brink, but time is running out.

What’s the IUCN? The IUCN stands for the International Union for Conservation of Nature. They’re the global authority on the status of the natural world and how we can protect it. Our experts collect and analyse data to evaluate the IUCN status of each individual gibbon species.
