The endangered grey gibbon (Hylobates muelleri muelleri) may not be seen in captivity much longer. There are now too few in captivity to keep their population sustained and too few in the wild to bring more in. With limited space and funding, zoos must make hard choices every year in deciding which species to breed and which to let go, or ‘phase out’.
