A New Species of Monkey is Discovered in Tanzania: The First in Africa for More Than 20 Years

the Southern Highlands, and we must continue to strongly support Tanzania’s conservation efforts.? Butynski fully agrees, adding that, “This discovery is especially important because it not only expands the diversity of the genus Lophocebus from two to three species, it extends the geographic range of the genus 500 miles (800 km) to the south, thereby contributing much to our understanding of primate diversity, evolution, and biogeography.? As a result of their research in the Udzungwas over much of the last decade, Ehardt and Butynski have been calling for extension of the Udzungwa Mountains National Park to include the surrounding forest reserves. The presence of the new mangabey strengthens arguments for the improved protection of the Ndundulu Forest.

"Clearly this remarkable discovery shows that there are still wild places where humans are not the dominant species," said Dr. John G. Robinson Senior Vice-President and Director of International Conservation Programs for WCS. "This new species of monkey should serve as a living symbol that there is hope in protecting not only wild places like Tanzania’s Southern Highlands, but the wonder and mystery they contain."

Meanwhile, WCS continues its conservation work in the Southern Highlands, while CI and independently funded researchers continue to support conservation efforts in the Udzungwas and in the other Eastern Arc Mountains.

“Such partnerships are crucial to the conservation mission in the 21st century," said Mittermeier, who is the president of Conservation International. ``By sharing expertise and resources, partners get the most value for money spent.?/p>

The Southern Highlands team was coordinated and funded by WCS; the project that produced the discovery in Ndundulu Forest received financial support from WCS, CI, the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund, the Margot Marsh Biodiversity Fund, Primate Conservation, Inc., the Primate Action Fund, The University of Georgia Researc
