The world's 25 most endangered primates have been named in a report released at the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity on Oct. 15, 2012. These "Primates in Peril" include those hairy animals considered most in danger of becoming extinct from various threats, including destruction of their tropical-forest homes, illegal wildlife trade and commercial hunting for bush meat.
