There are only about 160 Blond Titi monkeys left in the entire world -- but the government of Brazil isn't doing anything to protect the species from extinction.

Click here to ask the Brazilian government to take immediate measures to protect the Blond Titi monkey from extinction.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature lists them as "critically endangered" which means they're only one disaster away from becoming extinct. Because of the deforestation occurring throughout Brazil, the Titi monkey's habitat gets smaller every year.

Cattle ranching -- including feeding the cows that end up on dinner plates around the world -- is encroaching on the monkeys' once-lush jungle. The cities and suburbs blooming throughout the country are doing the same thing.

And if that weren't enough, the monkeys are often hunted for their pelts or kidnapped to be used as pets in the wild.

The Brazilian government needs to set aside protected areas for Blond Titi monkeys, before they're all go ne forever. Sign the petition asking Brazil to save the world's last 160 Blond Titi monkeys!
