25 primates about to disappear


The Guardian. U.K., had a story today entitled "The Edge of Oblivion" about twenty-five primates that are on the verge of becoming extinct. The story is based on a report by 60 experts from 21 countries that was sponsored by three conservation groups: the Primate Specialist Group of the World Conservation Union’s (IUCN) Species Survival Commission (SSC), the International Primatological Society (IPS), and Conservation International.

The Guardian also had a slide show of each of the twenty-five endangered primates here.
