The first reintroductions began in April 2010 with the release of 4 macaques and another 5 animals in June. The two groups merged shortly after the second group was released. In January of 2011 a third group of 11 macaques was reintroduced. In April 2012 a 4th group of 9 animals was released.In every case monitoring and provisioning of food is done on a daily basis for 1-2 months, then slowly decreased to every other day, then third day, and finally once a week. Of the 29 animals released to date, 6 animals disappeared, 1 was brought back to the Rescue Center after sustaining severe wounds, and the others remain healthy and apparently well adapted to life in the forest. The next release is planned for late 2012.
