They are such dramatic ,beautiful creatures. There is such diversity in nature . It is shocking that these animals should become extinct. We pay such attention to earthlings and our existence. The primates should not be allowed to disappear from the planet .

Thankyou as always Tom for the great,if not sad article.

Sad and sadder that it will only continue with the current policies of the countries where these primates live. The clock on endangered species seems to be speeding up.
