How large is the Roloway monkey population in the
southwestern forests of Ghana?
One of the most important tasks of this research expedition is to try to determine just how large are the populations of the Roloway monkey in the forests. In other words, how abundant are they?
Roloway monkeys are cryptic and elusive making them very difficult to find. Aside from knowing how many there are, researchers also want to know how Roloway monkeys spend their time. You might want to review Tools of the Trade to learn just how researchers go about determining population size.
How does answering the question, "How large is the Roloway monkey population in the southwestern forests of Ghana?" help the Ghanian people create a conservation plan that protects the monkeys and benefits the local people?
You can find out what data we collected and the tools we used to collect the data by checking the daily data page. Just like us though, you will need to analyze the data in order to draw any conclusions.
|The Roloway monkey is listed as critically endangered by the IUCN. This means that it has a 50% probability of extinction in 5 years and its total population is less than 250 individuals.|
