The Yucatán Black Howler Monkey Alouatta lives in a wide range of vegetation types, including evergreen and semi-evergreen broad-leaved forests, evergreen and semi-evergreen mixed needle-leaved and broad-leaved forests, deciduous and semi-deciduous broad-leaved forests, mangroves and swamps (Baumgarten and Williamson 2007). They can be found in human-disturbed forests, including eucalyptus plantations (Bonilla-Sánchez et al. 2012), agricultural plantations (Estrada et al. 2006) or in remnant vegetation surrounded by pastureland and urban areas (Rodriguez Luna et al. 2006).
The main threat to the Yucatán Black Howler Monkey is #palmoil #deforestation across its range in #Guatamala and #Mexico. Endangered on @IUCNredlist, you can help this beautiful animal with a #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
