Black Snub-nosed monkey population recovering in Yunnan
The number of black snub-nosed monkeys in southwestern China has increased by more than 50 percent since the 1990′s due to conservation efforts, reports Chinese state media. A survey launched last month in the high elevation forests of China’s Yunnan Province and Tibet Autonomous Region indicates that there are now more than 3,000 monkeys, up from less than 2,000 in the 1990′s.

Say what we will about China (And I do often…), when they want something conserved, it is!
