Primate Species on Brink of Extinction
 Primate Species on Brink of Extinction

By Sunisha Jular 

Twenty five species of mankind’s closest living relatives are on the brink of extinction due to an increase in deforestation, the hunting of the primates for food and illegal wildlife trafficking. Six species are from Madagascar, five from mainland Africa, five from South America and nine from Asia.   

With only 19 known individuals left, lemurs are on the top of the list making them the most endangered group of mammals out of the 633 types of primates in the world. This is due to three years of political crises in Madagascar and lack of effective enforcement. A similar crisis is occurring in South East Asia where their extinction will be pointed to trade in wildlife.
