Mostached Guenon

The moustached guenon or moustached monkey  is a species  in the family Cercopithecidae. Its range includes Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon.

They are considered to have a large wild population, and as such are a popular lab animal. Unfortunately this may well change quickly, as being common, they are often the most targeted primate for the bushmeat trade.

The best way to change this problem is for many people to visit the forests where primates like this live, this will allow locals to see a value to the species in the wild, which is likely to greatly reduce the amount of hunting that goes on.

As connections are made, we will link people and places which are useful for arranging your own wild travel.
