About the book

In 1993, Tilo Nadler, an ageing German welder turned air-conditioning engineer, photographer, filmmaker and self-made biologist arrived in Vietnam for training foresters in Cuc Phuong National Park to secure the Park from poachers, hunters and vandals. Within two months, he is tasked with the care of two confiscated sub adult male Delacour’s langurs, a rare, endemic and critically endangered primate species. This book narrates Tilo’s story to start-up a world class rehabilitation centre for endangered primates against all odds in Vietnam.
