It is a sign of the times that it need hardly be said that the African apes are in a state of crisis. Dire predictions abound about their chances of survival in the wild into the next century, or even to the end of this one. Not only are African apes threatened with extinction, but also the many other species that share their habitats, as today we are witnessing a loss of species and the degradation or disappearance of entire ecosystems at a rate unprecedented in human history. Some authorities calculate that, around the world, we are already losing more than 100 species per day. At this rate, an estimated 25% of the world’s species present in the mid-1980s may be extinct by the year 2015 or soon thereafter.
