The Santa Marta White-fronted Capuchin is #endangered in #Colombia #SouthAmerica by #deforestation for #timber #soy #meat #palmoil. Help their survival by joining the #Boycott4Wildlife on #brands causing #deforestation!Tweet
The Santa Marta white-fronted capuchin is distributed in deciduous and tropical rainforests of the north-eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta from sea level up to elevations as high as 1,300 m (Ruiz-García et al. 2010; Defler 2003, 2004).
Global Forest Watch data for the Colombian departments of Cesar, La Guajira and Magdalena, in which this species is known or believed to occur, suggest that, should forest loss continue at the same rate that has impacted the previous generation (2009-2034), close to 30% of this species’ suitable habitat is likely to be lost by the year 2066 (Global Forest Watch 2020).
