With the combination of joint monitoring and policy subsidies, the number of Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus has grown from less than 100 in the 1980s to nearly 1,000 at present in Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus National Nature Reserve in Chongzuo, Guangxi Province, and the number is still steadily increasing.

According to Wu Jianbao, director of the Nature Reserve Management Bureau, Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus has a history of more than 3 million years, and it is one of the 25 most endangered primates in the world, due to its sparse population. At present, the only remaining Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus are distributed in Chongzuo, where there were only less than 100 Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus in 1980s.

The local government has been working hard to protect Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus. The combination mode of joint monitoring and policy subsidies was adopted. First of all, Chongzuo Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus Nature Reserve Management Bureau cooperated with Municipal Bureau of Public Security to establish the monitoring site for Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus with integration of monitoring, patrolling, education, police services and other functions, and posted notice or announcement in the surrounding communities and villages of the Nature Reserve to prevent poaching and other illegal acts. “In the past 10 years, no Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephalus poaching cases has ever occurred as we have vigorously enforced the law and regulated the management,” says Wu Jianbao.

Secondly, the region has been encouraging the local people to develop biogas digesters by providing policy subsidies in recent years, in order to reduce the damage of the local people's logging on the habitat of Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephal. At present, the biogas digester is fully popularized in the core area of Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephal Nature Reserve, achieving the protection for the habitat of Trachypithecus poliocephalus ssp. Leucocephal. (forestry.gov.cn)
