Black Spider Monkeys

Are we really on the verge of losing them for good?

Unfortunately, the answer is yes.

The overall climate conditions of the Amazon River and the Amazon Rainforest are starting to claim the innocent lives of these poor monkeys. But now it's time to stop making excuses about why we are unable to save them, and actually DO SOMETHING!

The best way to begin the journey is to learn more about them, their lifestyle, and habitat area.

Where do they live?

They live mainly in and around the Amazon Rainforest and River. This makes them South American. In addition, they rely on most of the plants and fruits that grow there to survive.

This picture shows a more broad visual of where our furry little friends live. The Amazon Rainforest in South America is HUGE! These monkeys can be all over that area. Ain't that something cool?

So, what do they eat?

Black Spider Monkeys are omnivores. They are mainly fruit eaters. Since that's mainly all that they have around them, its pretty obvious that's what they'll chow down on.

Their diets range from eating mangos, pears, and anything else found.

What is the WWF doing to save them?

The WWF is starting to conserve forest area and natural resources that the monkeys rely on. But the WWF needs your help.
