A juvenile rhesus macaque, Macaca mulatta, in Kam Shan Country Park, north of Kowloon, Hong Kong, China. This Image is a part of the mission Wild Sea Hong Kong (Wild Wonders of China). Since 2009, OPCFHK has been contracted by AFCD to help manage the local population of wild macaques with the implementation of a contraceptive programme. Female macaques are sterilised via endoscopic tubectomy, a contraceptive operation that leaves the ovaries in place but interrupts the fallopian tubes, thus not allowing the egg to meet the spermatozoa.
