Who We Are

Founded in January 2016, the Langur Project Penang (LPP) is an outreach research and conservation project under the umbrella of the Malaysian Primatology Society (MPS) and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). LPP studies the ecology, road ecology and behaviour of the Dusky Langurs (Trachypithecus obscurus).

In collaboration with governmental bodies, educational institutions and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) in Malaysia, LPP serves as a platform for environmental research and education for students and the local community. 

LPP is looking to amplify its voice for the Dusky Langurs by preserving Dusky Langurs’ natural habitat, continuing to battle the illegal wildlife trade, and by keeping as a crucial platform for research and outreach programmes in Penang.
