There are only about 8,000 Barbary macaques remaining in northern Africa. In many places they’re captured as house pets or tourist attractions, and their habitat is shrinking. An NGO is carrying out an information campaign to protect them.

Barbary macaques are under threat thanks to their popularity as pets and in tourism. One project in Morocco is working to save the endangered species by returning captured animals to the wild.
