Around the world about 60% of primate species are faced with the threat of extinction. Primates live mainly in tropical and subtropical regions, which are regions facing huge challenges. These regions are some of the most severely affected by climate change, which although doesn't affect primates directly it does affect their ecosystem. A more fragile ecosystem combined with other human influences such as poaching and habitat destruction further endangers these creatures. Humans should be concerned by this because science shows that we evolved from primates, so it is our duty to protect our ancestors from our own carelessness. What is happening to primates now will soon also be happening to other species and eventually to us.
