Vetstreet: 20 Animals You Might Not Know Are Going Extinct

Monkeys

Hunting and habitat loss are two reasons Spider monkeys in Central America are disappearing. Spider monkeys require large areas of forest for a healthy habitat and have been subject to population decline due to deforestation in areas of Costa Rica, Panama, El Salvador and Belize. Spider monkeys have a slow reproductive cycle and are no longer living in areas where they were commonly found in the early 1900s.
