New Hope in Hainan
I wonder if you remember late last year we brought you the story of China's amazing gibbons living in the tropical forests of Hainan Island. Back then we told you how commercial plantations had devoured huge tracts of this precious forest and had driven the gibbons to the edge of extinction. Just 23 animals left at the last count.

Wish you were here!
