How is forest decline affecting monkey populations?



  1. 0 Votes

    Monkey populations around the world are being negatively affected by habitat destruction and loss. They are lossing their homes because people are cutting down or severely altering the forests where they live. Some species of monkey feed on vary specific plants (have a very limited diet). If these trees are cut down, the monkeys cannot easily switch to another type of plant and may die from starvation. Some monkeys live in family groups and are quite social. They need large forest tracts in which to live. Cutting even a little bit of the forest can negatively affect the monkeys and may lead to declines in their populations.
