This series focuses on some of the best-known animals that are struggling to survive on our overcrowded planet. It introduces readers to various species at risk and explains the wider environmental issues involved.;This book examines the various threats facing the world's monkeys and discusses ways of protecting them. Monkeys belong to the family of primates, which also includes apes and humans. Early chapters concentrate on the unique characteristics of monkeys, such as their physical features, intelligence and group behaviour. A variety of monkey species is used as an illustration of different habitats and feeding requirements, and the author goes on to explain the many threats facing monkeys today, including rainforest clearance, industrial development, hunting for food and trophies and live capture for the pet trade and medical research. The need for conservation measures, such as nature reserves, protection laws and breeding programmes is also discussed.
