Ochrana guerézy červené na Zanzibaru

Protection of red colobus monkey on Zanzibar by Martina Balzarová.

The red colobus monkey (Procolobus kirkii) is very endangered endemic species of Zanzibar islands. The species evolved in Pleistocene period after Zanzibar was separated from African coast by sea. Nowadays population is estimated to be around 2000 individuals and it is still declining. The red colobus monkey eat leaves and unripe fruit because it can´t digest sugar. The monkeys all called poison monkey (in Swahili kima punju) by locals, because they often destroy plantations by eating young leaves of the plants. They are widely hunted and killed because of that, but great protection by law was established and yearly the locals get financial compensations for their lost crops from government. Even though the killing has decline and even stop in some places the monkeys are still in danger. The biggest population is now found in Jozani National park on Unguja island.
