Raffles’ Banded Langur Working Group (RBLWG)

The RBLWG was formed in August 2016 with representatives from the Jane Goodall Institute (Singapore), Wildlife Reserves Singapore, National University of Singapore, National Parks Board, Nature Society (Singapore), and also universities and agencies from Malaysia. 

The goals of the RBLWG are to: 

  1. Ensure that langur habitats are protected and restored
  2. Gather data through long-term research
  3. Secure resources and commitment for their conservation in Singapore and Malaysia

JGIS is currently helping to coordinate and manage citizen science surveys for the Raffles’ banded langurs. For more information about our work, visit the Raffles’ Banded Langur Working Group Facebook page

As part of our efforts to conserve the Raffles’ banded langur, JGIS has been organising population and ecological surveys to help us learn more about the langurs.

We recruit volunteers to help us conduct these surveys in two shifts (morning and afternoon) every weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Each batch of Citizen Scientists volunteer for a six-month duration, during which they are required to conduct at least one survey.

Data from these surveys are collated and analysed in reports and publications which are used to inform conservation policies and strategies to help the Raffles’ banded langurs.

For opportunities to get involved, keep an eye on our Volunteer page and stay tuned to our Events page for upcoming briefings.
