This endangered proboscis monkey named Jaka was the 6,000th species to board the Photo Ark and currently lives in a beautifully renovated exhibit with his brother Jeff at the Singapore Zoo ( ). Proboscis monkeys are the most aquatic of all primates and tend to live close to water. They love to swim and can dive as deep at 20 meters! Only males have large, pendulous noses like Jaka’s, which help resonate their calls. The bigger the nose, the more dominant the male.
The Singapore Zoo ( ) is currently supporting a project to protect and conserve one of the largest known populations of the Proboscis Monkey in Balikpapan Bay, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. This project focuses on community education and evaluating the importance of regenerating secondary forests to the species.
