Red colobus monkeys are considered the most threatened group of African monkeys, with 13 of the 17 red colobus species listed as Critically Endangered or Endangered, and all of them threatened with extinction. Their primary threats are poaching and habitat loss. Despite their conservation status, only a few red colobus populations have been studied in detail, and the public is largely unaware of these monkeys and their plight.

This Red Colobus monkey is prepared for flight -- perhaps anticipating the departure of his species from Earth.
