Lion-tailed Macaque Conservation
Deterioration of natural habitat, widely hunted for meat and fur, etc has lead to decrease in the population of Lion Tailed Macaque. The species is dangerously in the face of extinction so the wildlife conservation organisation in India is taking effective measures to protect this species. Now the Indian law is protecting this endangered species.
