The Popa Langur is a critically endangered monkey discovered a few years ago. Only 260 remain in the forests of #Myanmar endangered by #palmoil. They have no known conservation in place. Support them with a brand #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
A new primate species has been found in Myanmar, the Popa Langur Trachypithecus popa, was identified in the lab, using samples of tissues from museum specimens, captive species, and fecal samples from wild animals collected in the forests of Myanmar. Only around 200 to 260 Popa Langur individuals are known to exist, spread across four separate populations. The safest population, according to researchers, lives in an area of forest only about 26 square kilometers (10 square miles) in size, which may not give it room to sustain a growing population.
