These Intense Photos of Lion-Tailed Macaques Will Turn You Into a
Conservationist
Summary (150 to 300 words)
The article starts talking about how difficult were to find a macaque in the past. LionTailed macaques are so shy, small and quiet, as scientist describes them. They live in
Western Ghats in India where they’re considered as the only arboreal macaque on
earth. Macaque population is hard to describe but we can say that there’re only 3500
specimens. Many reasons explain their population decreasing and some of them are
deforestation, road-building and other human encroachments, as the author says.
Likely, there are some macaques in Kerala, in southwestern India. It’s one of the
relatively intact macaque’s habitats. In his visit, the author and his guide saw a group
of animals who are eating jackfruit. At the same time, a small monkey showed its
balance into a big tree and the fruit. It’s amazing how the macaque can eat a strong
fruit. Furthermore, the author talked with a pair of photographers who mentioned the
daily routine that they had to do for following the macaques. It was a consecutive
“feeding and rest”.
Macaques live in small groups, about 15 members. When a male specimen grows up,
it should leave the group. In this transition to look for a new group, they in dangerous.
Young male macaques have been run over or eaten by tourists! Because there’re not
males specimens in the groups, researches are looking for ways to prevent inbreeding
because it causes health problems in monkeys.
Finally, many conservationist groups are working to find a solution of that problem and
support remaining macaques. One of those solutions is to create boundaries around
forests and restore habitats.
