The San Martin titi monkey
Why protect this species?

Endemic and endangered. Altitude, relief and rivers have restricted the distribution of the species to the middle part of the San Martin region in Peru. Its survival is in danger due to the accelerated destruction and change of its habitat.

The extinction of the San Martin titi monkey can drastically change the functioning of the whole ecosystem, compromising the lives of other animal species. To conserve the titi monkeys we need to be able to understand phenomena such as predation, social evolution, demographic adaptations and their integration in the maintenance of ecosystem services.

We must ensure that future human generations also know of their existence and treaseure the potential benefits the titi monkeys can bring to local communities.

We are all titi monkeys!
