The Bald and Endangered Red Uakari

The red uakari, sometimes called the bald uakari, makes its home in the Amazon’s swampy areas, and is listed as a vulnerable species by the IUCN Red List, and their population is declining.

Like all species in the Amazon, its biggest threat is habitat loss — but they are also hunted and sold for food, and vulnerable to malaria.

Watch the video to learn more about the red uakari, and why its bald head is so red.

The red uakari and many other vulnerable Amazonian species need your help to protect their shrinking habitat. Find out how you can help right here.
