More than half of world's apes and monkeys in danger of extinction, study finds
About 60% of Earth's primate species are now threatened with extinction and about 75% have declining populations, according to study published Wednesday. In the case of the Hainan gibbon, a species of ape in China, there are fewer than 30 animals left on the planet. That and many other species will disappear in the next 25 years. Ref. USAToday.
