A RESCUED Philippine long-tailed macaque has been placed under the care of the Regional Wildlife Rescue Center in Baclay village, Tukuran, Zamboanga del Sur, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) said Friday, May 3, 2024.

The DENR regional office said the long-tailed macaque will be sent back to its natural habitat once assessed if it is fit and healthy enough to be released.  

The DENR said the rescued wildlife weighed around 980 grams and measured up to 49.5 inches from head to tail.
