Titis Sakis and Uakaris: Pitheciidae

Conservation Status

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists Barbara Brown's titi and Coimbra's titi as Critically Endangered, facing an extremely high risk of extinction, due to habitat loss or degradation from logging. The bearded saki is classified as Endangered, facing a very high risk of extinction, because of hunting and pet collection, as well as habitat loss from deforestation. Six other species are listed as Vulnerable, facing a high risk of extinction, and two species as Near Threatened, not currently threatened, but could become so, due to several factors, including hunting, capture for the pet trade, and habitat loss from deforestation for timber and agriculture.
