Only discovered as a species in 1988, it is still one of the least studied primates in its home habitat. Although preferring dense vegetation, they can tolerate surprisingly invaded areas, even with some logging. Only classed in CITES 2. While 10% of its range is in Lope national park, much of its current range is well outside protected areas of Gabon.
Much study is required in order to monitor this monkey more effectively, in order to work out how good its current status, and how to protect its future survival. This is also required in order to be able to start a significant tourism industry, however, as others we will add any tourism opportunities and these will appear below the news section that will sit below, as any are written.
