Biodiversity Connections

Conservation and science meetups since 201X.

Welcome the Monkey Year with!

monkeyear is a website set up by Andie Ang "to support primate watching and appreciation" and to help monitor primates, as many species are quickly slipping towards extinction. She was one of the researchers that helped to compile the list of Top 25 Most Endangered Asian primates, which will be released later this year. This specialist group meeting was hosted by WRS and organized by their Conservation Research Team. Great job once again!

In the meantime, you can check out the most recent publication on 25 of the World's Most Endangered Primates, Primates in Peril  - on this list, five species are from Madagascar, five from Africa, 10 from Asia, and five from Central and South America.

Any one interested to learn more and/or help with Andie with her efforts should get in touch with her. We'll be hosting a storytelling and sharing session with her soon so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here's one of many videos by her. Chill for a minute with this Southern Yellow-Cheeked Crested Gibbon:
