IUCN Status: Critically endangered
The two groups of Sulawesi macaques at Howletts are always popular with our visitors, as they chase each other through branches and play. Easily identifiable by the distinctive crest on their heads and their pink heart shaped rumps, we are home to 14 individuals.
Want To Know More
Sulawesi or celebes crested macaques are found in North-Eastern Sulawesi as well as a handful of nearby islands, where they live in dense rainforest.
These primates will eat almost anything, including fruit, insects and small mammals. Sadly, as their habitat dwindles and hunting increases, their numbers are in rapid decline in the wild.
