The Huro Program is also turned towards the other species of primates from northeast India which suffer also from poaching and loss of habitat. In this region live Assamese Maccaque, Stump-tailed Maccaque, Eat-crab Maccaque, Langur...
The Huro Program has also a humanitarian dimension turned over the support to the local population and help for developement in order to pacify the relations between Human and wild animals.
