Wide Eyed

A species of Red Colobus Monkey that is endemic to Zanzibar. The Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey was previously killed off by local villagers due to its penchant for unripe fruit.

 

With the tourism boom to the Jozani Forest more funds are able to go to the local villages, encouraging them to support the monkeys rather than kill them.
