Yellow-cheeked crested gibbon Nomascus gabriellae is a Globally Threatened species (IUCN - Endangered) restricted to the east of the Mekong River in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. The conservation status of this taxon is however clouded by the uncertain taxonomic status of northern populations and the lack of accurate population estimates. Surveys were conducted in Phnom Prich Wildlife Sanctuary, Mondulkiri province, Cambodia to assess the status of the gibbon population around this protected area.
