Protecting through Conservation, Education and Research
All doucs are entirely restricted to wooded habitats. Populations of doucs have been found in monsoon forests as well as rainforests and their forest homes include: semi evergreen, lowland lower montane and upper montane forests types. All forests are rapidly disappearing in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos as a direct result of intense and often illegal logging activities which supply hardwoods prized by the building trades for construction of houses, floors and furniture. Also forest land is being converted to agriculture at an increased rate as people move into the forests along with logging operations.
