This news is horribly depressing. Is there anything that can be done to save these species, perhaps by collecting their DNA and recreating them at a later date, when perhaps we humans are not nearly so blind to the mess that have made?

Horrible humans are killing off all animal species.
If any species deserves to be exterminated it is humans

I hate to say it, but if there ever was a reason to protect animals, it would be in a zoo.

It breaks my heart. Man's greed has no limit. How is it possible to contribute so energetically to the destruction of animals? Some species are not so endangered any more. For how long?

We have to protect these primates. Stop taking their homes away. Don't buy anything that has palm oil in it.
