From Wildlife Extra:

May 2008. A gibbon subspecies from China’s Yunnan province has been declared extinct by a Chinese-Swiss research team. The white-handed, or lar gibbon, Hylobates lar, was last observed in 1988 in the Nangunhe Nature Reserve in south-western Yunnan province, and the loud, melodious calls of this species of ape were last heard in Yunnan in 1992.

Rare Hoolock gibbon released into Kaziranga National Park [see also here] – pairs up with wild male: here.

Scientists may have discovered a form of language used by animals, similar to that used by our own ancestors. A study into the sounds white-handed gibbons make by Angela Dassow and Michael Coen at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has led to the discovery: here.
