“The reserve provides vital protection for two of the world’s most endangered primates. In 2008 an evaluation by the IUCN Primate Specialist Group recommended the reclassification of the species from Endangered to Critically Endangered with only a few thousand individuals left in the wild. This reserve forms one of only two protected areas for the species.”
