Nature's Foster and Aranya Suraksha Samiti
Nature's Foster, a Bongaigaon based NGO and Aranya Suraksha Samiti, bongaigaon District unit have come forward to create awareness among the locals so that the golden langur gets one more chance to survive.

The Kakaijana Reserve Forest, Bongaogaon is about 195 km from Dispur, Assam. The 1720 ha of land of the Reserve Forest has found new residents, the Schedule -I rare species, golden langur(Presbytis geei).

Nine members of 'Nature's Foster, out on a field trip along with two forest guards spotted six adults with a new born baby at a distance of about 17m on another slope and observed about twenty five golden langurs in five different groups on the same day. The golden langur population was earlier recorded from Manas and Chakrashila Wildlif Sanctuary, both of which are totally isolated from the Kakaijana Reserve Forest.

The golden langur inhabits evergreen forests in small troops of about 9 animals, consisting of an adult male, one or more females and several sub-adults. Continued deforestation by the locals is taking its toll on the habitat of the golden langur.
