Endangered Primates
Annotations by Cristina Vickery
Track #193592
Format: Extended learning
This Track will provide links that concern endangered primates of the world. By clicking on the Web sites available, vistors will be able to learn more about these endangered primates and what measures to take in order to prevent their extinction. More than half of all extant primate species are, to some degree, at risk of becoming extinct. Human activities such as deforestation, hunting, and the pet trade pose serious threats to wild populations. As with all endangered species, in order to save wild primates from extinction more protected areas must be established in their native habitats. This is ultimately the only conservation strategy that will insure their survival in the wild. The key to conservation is education.
