A new report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature reveals more than two dozen species of monkeys, langurs, lemurs and gorillas that researchers say are on the brink of extinction due to deforestation and illegal trafficking.

Among the most threatened was the northern sportive lemur: It's believed that only 19 are left in the wild in Madagascar.
