Yaki, also known as the Sulawesi crested macaques
These beauties are now one of the most endangered species on the planet
In recent years the critically endangered macaques have suffered as they’ve been hunted for their meat, taken as pets, and squeezed into ever smaller areas by illegal tree clearing for coconut plantations and villagers’ garden plots. Meanwhile conservationists are fighting government plans to open wildlands to roads and industries.
I absolutely love them ❤️❤️
