The Chinese white-headed langurs are golden when they are young, however their coat turns black when they mature and they begin to style a trendy mohawk-style hairstyle! In the rugged mountains of Guangxi Province, the white-headed langurs live an eventful life.
The adorable white-headed langur is on the first-class endangered species protection list in China. Following the inspiration of Dr. Jane Goodall’s work with chimpanzees, our Roots & Shoots groups feel a strong connection to this Chinese primate. Guangxi Roots & Shoots members participated in local activities with local conservation groups to monitor and observe white-headed langurs, as well as understood the changes in their population and distribution. Volunteers also organised community campaigns to maintain the natural habitat of these white-headed langurs.
