Meanwhile, continental species are not faring well either. Of the Neotropical primates, three species have moved up into higher threat categories. The Mexican black howler monkey (Alouatta pigra) moved from Least Concern to Endangered. There has been a 56% loss of habitat already and with continuing loss, the population is expected to decline by over 70% in the next 30 years. The variegated spider monkey (Ateles hybridus), found only in Colombia and Venezuela, moves from Endangered to Critically Endangered, and is at extreme risk. Threatened by habitat loss due to urban growth, agriculture and cattle grazing, the pied tamarin (Saguinus bicolor) also moves from Endangered to Critically Endangered.
Only one primate species has shifted into a lower threat category - the golden-lion tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia), from Critically Endangered to Endangered. After nearly 30 years of conservation efforts, including the establishment of a new subpopulation through translocation to a new protected area, the population size has increased. Asia's Mekong giant catfish (Pangasianodon gigas), one of the world's largest freshwater fish (growing up to 3m in length and weighing up to 300kg), is found only in the Mekong River basin area (Viet Nam, Cambodia, Thailand and Lao PDR) and has been upgraded from Endangered to Critically Endangered. This is largely due to over-fishing, habitat loss (such as through siltation and dredging) and obstruction of migratory routes through dam construction. Its population has declined by more than 80% over the last

    On the 2000 Red List of Threatened Species, the short-tailed albatross is listed as an endangered species in the United States. World Conservation Union director general Maritta von Bieberstein Kock-Weser has had time to study the numbers, and the shock hasn't worn off. The findings come from a World Conservation Union (IUCN) "These findings should be taken very seriously by the global community," said Bieberstein Kock-Weser. In the wake of the report, the IUCN is joining forces with various conservation groups, governments and local communities to bring awareness of the plight of planetary biodiversity. Since the IUCN's last assessment in 1996, the 2000 Red List of Threatened Species reveals that critically endangered primates increased from 13 to 19 and threatened albatross species jumped from three to 16 due to long-line fisheries. The report has disquieting indicators at every turn. Endangered freshwater turtle species, heavily exploited for food and medicinal use in Asia, increased from 10 to 24.

    Whilst WSSD saw the announcement of a number of new large protected area initiatives, including the Congo Basin Forest Initiative, it may still al= l be too late for some of our closest relatives.

    Order: Primates Family: Cebidae Subfamily: Cebinae Genus: Saimiri Species: Saimiri sciureus Geographic Range Neotropical: Squirrel monkeys live in the tropical rainforests of South America, except in the southeastern coastal forests of Brazil. Distinguishing Characteristics Squirrel monkeys are up to 12.5 inches long (body length), with a tail of approximately 16 inches. They have a slender, lithe build, with a short grayish coat and bright yellow legs. Their non-prehensile tail often curls over one shoulder when they are resting. They have 36 teeth, and their teeth are sexually dimorphic in that males have large upper canines. Squirrel monkeys possess nails instead of claws, and they have been called 'small, nervous primates'. They are the smallest of the Primate family Cebidae. Natural History Food Habits Squirrel monkeys eat mainly fruit and some insects; they also consume some leaves and seeds. The first hour or so of the day is spent searching and collecting fruit. From then on, they look also for spiders and insects. A group spreads throughout the forest in all canopy levels to search for food.

World Global extinction crisis is “as bad or worse than believed” The world's largest conservation-related organisation says that there have been dramatic declines in populations of many species, including reptiles and primates since 1996. The Red-shanked Douc Langur faces imminent extinction The World Conservation Union (IUCN), released its report 2000 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species , which it says is the most authoritative global assessment of species loss on 29 Sepember, and which is full of “alarming facts.” The organisation, which brings together government agencies, scientists and NGOs from 181 countries, says that since its last assessment in 1996, critically endangered primates increased from 13 to 19, and the number of threatened albatross species has increased from three to 16 due to long-line fisheries. Freshwater turtles, heavily exploited for food and medicinal use in Asia, went from 10 to 24 critically endangered species in just four years. A total of 11,046 species of plants and animals are listed as threatened, facing a high risk of extinction in the near future, in almost all cases as a result of human activities. This includes 24% of mammal species and 12% of bird species. The total number of threatened animal species has increased from 5,205 to 5,435.
