In a research conducted by African Climatologist, and network of members of African forestry ,it shows clearly that ,Increasing Global warming and climate change factors with continues attack on wild life animals by human being , seems to be the greatest threat to both monkeys , apes and other animals in the entire forestry of African continent,
A rise in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has also been linked to a drop in the amount of protein in leaves,and indeed Monkeys eat leaves a lot,and without leaves, there is no tendency of their survival in the region.
African monkeys and apes that have a high percentage of leaves in their diet are geographically more restricted even now, being confined to a relatively narrow region around the equator. However, fruit-eating species like the baboons and guenon monkeys of Africa typically have a much wider latitudinal range and can cope with a wider range of climatic conditions.
But climate change is affecting plants and animals in ways that are far less spectacular and harder to detect. And yet these subtle changes have the same potential to decimate populations.
The continuous activities negative of hunters that keep burning the forestry in search of wild life Animals has equally contributed immensely in killing so many species of plant in which the animals uses as foods,while the forestry is turning to desert,many animals including the monkeys migrated to other countries where they can be safe from such an attack
Monkey species will become ‘increasingly at risk of extinction’ because of global warming, Populations of monkeys and apes in Africa that depend largely on a diet of leaves may be wiped out by a rise in annual temperatures of two degrees Celsius

Climate change is not only an increasing concern for humans but rising sea levels and climbing temperatures may also threaten our closest cousins – monkeys, apes and lemurs,
African Climate reporters therefore deem it fit to also support African Union in the fight against deforestation and rise against climate change in the region
The population birth rate of monkeys in African is slowed due to so many climatic factors, and the continuous attack by hunter for using them as bush meat is another great factor,hence the need for African union and Animals right protect to rise up against all form of threat disturbing the existence of monkeys in Africa
Believed me or not Africa is likely to be the continent most vulnerable to climate change
As climate change increasingly affects the world, Africa is at risk of facing severe impacts given its geographical position and limited adaptive capacity, exacerbated by widespread poverty and low levels of development
