IUCN Red List Endangered Species ~ Threatened.
The black-crested Sulawesi Macaques is one of the most endangered monkeys in the world, populations declining 60% in the last 10 years. This monkey is found on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, where it is hunted because its meat is considered a delicacy. Habitat destruction is also contributing to their demise
I just read this sad story about some Macaques in a British Zoo at the end of last year…I’m not sure of it’s validity, if this is confirmed as true, I am outraged!
If anyone can confirm this really happened, be sure to let me know.
