Sponsor a monkey

The Javan Langur monkey, found mostly in the mangrove, beach and freshwater swamp forests of Indonesia, is in danger of extinction. The main threat to its existence comes, unsurprisingly, from human activity. Expanding towns and farmland have compromised its natural habitat. They are also illegally traded as pets.

The Javan Langur monkey is considered by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species to be vulnerable to extinction, their numbers in the wild having decreased by a stagering 30% in the past 30 years.

It has never been more important to protect this striking animal. And you can do so today through the WWF - by adopting a monkey quickly and easily online.

The WWF is dedicated to nurturing and protecting endangered species of animals from all over the world. Their website offers you the opportunity to contribute to the welfare of many different species that desperately need protection. Through its animal adoption and sponsorship scheme it returns endangered animals, including many gorillas, to safe, natural habitats.
