Samango Monkeys - Two Videos From Other Areas

"Of the few species of primate in South Africa, samango monkeys are the least known. This is because samangos are limited to the canopies of mist-belt forests and these are threatened and more and more fragmented. Two researchers have recently joined forces to have a look at samangos -- one from the Soutpansberg population, the other from the Hogsback population. Their study will reveal information about the behaviour, ecology and conservation of the monkeys and may help to reveal differences between the Soutpansberg and Hogsback individuals. We speak to them about issues of genetic flow and the resultant separation of a species into subspecies. These monkeys could be more threatened than we realised."
