IUCN and the International Primatological Society have recently released a report in collaboration with Conservation International, highlighting the need for further conservation efforts of endangered primates. The report states that 29% of all the worlds primates are on the verge of becoming extinct, due to the demolition of tropical rainforests, hunting, and illegal wildlife trade. The Greater bamboo lemur, White-collared lemur, Sahamalaza Peninsula sportive lemur, and Silky sifaka – all found only in Madagascar, are mentioned in the report. To find out more click here.
