This Newly Discovered Monkey is Already on the Verge of Extinction…

The kipunji monkey was first discovered about ten years ago, and belongs to its own unique genus.

However, although we have only just discovered them, the kipunji monkey may be on the verge of extinction — their habitat is shrinking, and there are only about 1,000 specimens in existence. They are one of the rarest monkeys in Africa.

Watch the rare, first footage of this incredible, endangered creature.
