Temminck’s Red Colobus, Communities for Red Colobus, The Gambia

Found at the far west of the range of Red Colobus, Temminck’s Red Colobus is under threat from poaching and habitat loss due to the production of charcoal. This project is currently not in need of funding, but may need support later the 3-year period. Re:wild is supporting the establishment of a new community co-managed park for the species and developing community-based approaches to protect the forest and monkey.
