Care For Us – Macaques

Project Info

Project Description

Macaques are within the genus of Old World Monkeys and there are 23 different species of macaques around the world. Most macaques have tails but some species, including the Barbary macaque, have no tail.

Macaques live in troops and are mainly arboreal but are equally at home on the ground. Some species of macaque are endangered on the IUCN’s Red List of Threatened Species, commonly due to hunting, capture for the pet trade and habitat destruction.
