Spider monkeys are one of the most interesting and intelligent animals in the animal kingdom. They're agile creatures, and rely on their long limbs and tail for climbing and balance.

In Central America, though, spider monkeys are in great danger. Human interference poses the greatest threat to these animals, as hunting of their species and logging whittle down the population day by day. Baby spider monkeys are stolen from the mothers and sold on the black market, while the mothers are killed.

Please sign the petition asking the Director General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature to find a solution to the impending spider monkey extinction.

Dear Julia Marton-Lefèvre, Director General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN):

I am writing to address the impending extinction of spider monkeys in Central America if nothing is done to stop the killing of the species.

Human intervention is largely to blame for the peril of the spider monkeys; deforestation and developments systematically obliterate monkey habitat and hunting decimates their species. Mothers and children are also taken, and the babies are sold on the black market while the mothers are killed.

If this continues, the spider monkey will soon face extinction. Please do all you can to ensure a better future for the Central American spider monkeys!

Thank you.
