A report revealed by primate specialist Russ Mittermeier revealed that nearly half of all primate species are now in danger of becoming extinct from deforestation, wildlife trade, and hunting. The list included five species from Madagascar, six from Africa, 11 from Asia, and three from Central and South America. One of the most endangered of the group is the Golden headed langur which is found in northeastern Vietnam. There are only about 60 -70 individuals that remain in the wild.
